    Amber's Cell Phone and Ping

    Reference info about Amber’s cell phone and one ping on Sat, Feb 14, 2009

    Amber’s Cell Phone: Verizon model LG VX 10000
    http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=1333

    Fri, Feb 13, 2009


    • ~7:10AM - Amber went missing
    • Night - Verizon Wireless reset the password on Amber's cell phone so Amber's frantic mother could access her daughter's cell phone voicemail to determine if Amber had listened to any messages


    Sat, Feb 14, 2009


    • The next day, Amber's cell phone was turned on for less than 30 seconds
    • Someone attempted to check the phone's voice mail but couldn’t because the password had been reset (Notes: Amber’s father said #86 was dialed, but I think he meant *86?)
    • The signal was picked up by a cell tower on Amber Lane in northern Escondido. The tower covers a five-mile radius, which means the phone could have been just about anywhere in Escondido
    • Police issued an emergency alert phone call (reverse 911) to homes in the area asking whether anyone had seen Amber, but again, they found nothing

    The phone has not been turned on again since then.

    Map with location of Cell Tower that Amber’s phone pinged (Amber Lane) in relation to several other areas:

    D. Amber Lane, Escondido, CA – cell phone tower that picked the ping from Amber’s cell on Sat, Feb 14, 2009. The tower covers a 5 miles radius. JAG’s residence on Rock Springs is 3.1 miles to Amber Lane. N Broadway where Amber was last seen is about 1.5 miles to Amber Lane. North of Amber Lane is Jesmond Dene Park / Hidden Meadows, west is San Marcos, north-east is Dixon Dam / Lake City Park, and south is just north of Felicita / Kit Carson Park

    Just curious, does anyone know what time of day the cell phone was turned on on Saturday?

    Good question. This one article says Saturday afternoon.

    The phone was turned back on once on Saturday afternoon when someone tried unsuccessfully to access the phone's voicemail and then shut off again shortly after, they said, adding no further readings from the phone have been retrieved.

    One of JAG's hobbies are listed on classmates.com as fishing. Where do the fisherman go? One of the areas that came up when I googled Escondido with Eucalyptus groves and pampas grass (like Mick has invisioned) (Maybe it's everywhere, huh?) was Lake Dixon and Daley ranch. Would that lake have been within the 5 mile radius of the cell tower where amber's phone went off?

    Good catch. Not sure where people fish, but all of these seem within the 5 mile radius of cell tower on Amber Lane where Amber's phone pinged.

    Dixon Dam and Lake City Park
    Daley Ranch
    Dixon Reservoir

    Is it just me, or does anyone else get that "twilight zone feeling" about the cell tower that pinged her phone was on Amber lane. Seems like that's some kind of karma or fate or somebody trying to tell us something. I wonder if the Dixon Reservoir/lake area was searched at all when she first went missing. Maybe Mick should google Dixon Lake Images and see if anything looks familiar to his vision? Someone knows where this guy used to go fishing; fishermen tell lots of stories!

    I'm 1000 miles away, but I found this post on the web and I didn't realize that Dixon lake area is also the closest area to the high school.


    I have been haunted by Amber's disappearance, my heart goes out to her family. I pray for this to be resolved and that she is found soon. Nothing has been mentioned of anyone searching for Amber around Dixon Lake - that seems to be the nearest wooded area to her high school. If the monster that killed Chelsea is involved it seems his pattern is to take them somewhere secuded. It wouldnt make sense for him to travel to Kit Carson Park - not that this monster would make any sense at all anyway but its worth a shot.

    I just read on Amber Dubois' Help find my Child website where her family has gathered several times in her remembrance at "Dixon Lake". Does anyone know if this area has ever been searched? You'd think since it was in the 5 mile radius of the cellphone tower, it would have been but I find no record of it.

    The cell phone ping has always bothered me. From what her dad said it would appear that someone tried the old password. Who besides Amber knew that password? If it were Amber why wouldn't she have called 911?

    There seems to be some 'Illumanist' overtones to this case...her disappearance date 2 13 2009, right? Two '2's" a '3' and an encrypted square root '3'. Making lots of '322's' the skull and bones/Illumanati number possible. A trickster calling from Amber Lane seems to thumb their nose at whatever happened, unless of course Amber fled her family for some unknown reason and was just checking her mail. It would be interesting to know what password was tried.

    I just found that actual article and does say that the Dixon Lake area was searched in the early days.

    Harker said her niece would have loved the birthday picnic, set overlooking a bright blue Lake Dixon under a clear sky. The park, along with adjacent Daily Ranch were places where search and rescue operations concentrated in the early days of Amber's disappearance.
