    Medical Conditions: Amber has a hearing impairment and uses a hearing aid and reads lips. She has a slight speech impediment due to her impaired hearing. She also suffers from migraine headaches due to a concussion she sustained in 1984. The headaches cause loss of balance and vomiting. She took the prescription medication Fiornal for them at the time she disappeared. Amber had neither her hearing aid nor her medicine with her when she vanished.

    Details of Disappearance: Amber was last seen jumping rope at approximately 4:15 p.m. in the front yard of her family's Pinole, California residence on June 3, 1988. Her mother, Kim Swartz, checked outside approximately 15 minutes after Amber left the house and noticed she had disappeared. The child has never been heard from again.

    A witness reported having seen someone matching her description at Alvarado Park between 15 and 30 minutes after her disappearance. The girl was being roughly handled by an adult white man and was thrown into a car by him at the park entrance. The witness described the girl's assailant was being about forty years old, 5'7, and 160 pounds. He was driving an older model four-door General Motors car, full-sized, and tan in color. Authorities have never been able to identify the man.
