    Good find. Name fits. Age fits. Appearance fits. MO fits.

    This is a good sign. If she has disappeared before and re-appeared, there is hope she will re-appear again. Fingers crossed.

    What a story... so, she has PTSD and may have memory loss or paranoia or both.

    Missing Arizona woman found in Niskayuna

    [...]

    Her mother, Patricia Schachtner, told a Calgary television station that Hanover suffers from PTSD after being attacked in 2017. In March, Hanover and her parents talked about her belief that there were people following her; her parents planned to sign her up for a 72-hour medical observation.

    On March 15 she left her home to visit a relative in California. That was the last her family in Arizona heard from her for more than a month.

    On April 24 a traffic ticket was sent to her husband's home from Vancouver, Canada. Then in May, Calgary police called. Hanover's car had been impounded after it was left at the University of Edmonton and ticketed repeatedly. Calgary police could not be reached for comment Sunday.

    [...]

    At one point around May 22, she showed up near Ottawa, on foot with two coats. A couple in that area helped her get in touch with police after thinking something was wrong. Her family next heard from her later in May, when she arrived in Burlington, Vermont. At some point, Hanover again got in touch with her mother, who arranged for her to come to Albany so her uncle could pick her up.

    So...the last time she went missing she was living in Arizona, car found in Calgary, and she was found in New York?! She could be anywhere.

    This quote if from 3rd link posted above:

    "Hanover’s mother, Patricia Schachtner told CTV News in an interview that her daughter suffered from PTSD."

    That is worrisome.

    Doesn't sound troubling - sounds like an educated, active, involved adult.

    Was she active before the last update?

    (Sorry to be needy, lol!)

    Hmmm....the last time she disappeared, it was in March. So she hasn't updated FB since then, or at least not publically.

    This story needs to be covered nationally and in Canada. She could be anywhere and likely is vulnerable.

    Kenosha Police searching for missing endangered woman
    [...]

    A Kenosha Police officer wrote a ticket for a car with Michigan plates parked along the drive just before 5 p.m Wednesday.

    When the vehicle was still on the drive hours later, officers returned to take a closer look at the vehicle at 10:15 p.m. They saw that there were keys locked in the car along with a phone and clothing, Lt. James Beller said.

    Officers then contacted the registered owner of the car, who said his 39-year-old daughter Amanda Hanover was using the vehicle, and family had not spoken to her since March 18.

    [...]

    According to news reports from 2018, Hanover has gone missing in the past.

    In March 2018 she disappeared from her home in Arizona. Her car was found in May 2018 in Calgary, Alberta.

    A month later, according to news reports at the time, she was found in a “distressed state” in a small town in New York.

    In an interview with a television station when Hanover was missing last year, her mother said Hanover was struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after a violent attack in 2017.

    Deja vu: Search is on For Woman Who Disappeared Mysteriously Before
    A Phoenix-area woman whose mysterious disappearance last year ended with her recovery in New York state may be missing again. And this time Kenosha has been drawn into it.

    According to a report last year on a radio station's website, Amanda Hanover had been suffering from the effects of a violent attack and had PTSD when she disappeared from her home in Arizona. A few weeks later, she turned up in the state of New York, near the home of an uncle. At the time of the report, authorities had no idea how she had gotten there. Police found her trying to flag down traffic. She couldn't remember her name. Police eventually connected with the uncle who solved the identity part of the mystery.

    Where are you Amanda? Do you even know yourself? Are you in some dissociative or fugue state? Or did you abandon your car by the big lake for the obvious reason?



    When she was found previously, she had two Amtrak tickets and a post it note with 3 phone numbers. And one of those numbers actually got her in contact with family. Family who didn't really recognize her until they saw her tattoo.

    I do wonder what, if anything, they learned about her prior missing memories.

    When she went missing from AZ - by way of CA, leaving her car by University of Calgary and ultimately being found in NY - she had a husband, from whom she'd filed for divorce by the time she was missing in 2018. Presumably they are divorced now? And kids too :(



    From article about prior disappearance.... before she'd been found, but after her car had been located abandoned in 2018.

    "..."
    Towards the end of March, she came over to the house and her dad was here,” said Schachtner in a Skype interview with CTV Calgary. “We had a heart-to-heart talk with her about getting help, getting mental health help.”

    “We knew she was struggling with PTSD and we had actually signed her in for 72 hours of observation because she was telling us that people were stalking her and she was seeing people that weren’t there.”

    A short time later, Schachtner says Amanda left Arizona, leaving her 11-year-old son and four-year-old daughter behind, without notice.

    “Given her mental state and her emotional state and her decision making, I’m really worried.”

    According to Schachtner, Amanda has contacted Gavin, her husband who she has filed for divorce from, on several occasions in the weeks that followed but give little insight into her location. The first indication that the chartered professional accountant had made her way to Canada appeared when Gavin received a parking ticket in the mail from Vancouver, B.C. for the vehicle registered in his and Amanda’s name.

    I so hope it's not Amanda, but it's very sad no matter who she is :( I'd forgotten about Amanda's previous "junkett," and I'm not all that far from where she turned up then. I want her to have the chance to get all the help she needs, for her childrens' sake as well as her own.
