Hayward’s purse was found on the side of the road several miles from her residence hours after the disappearance. The purse contained her belongings, including credit cards and cash.
Car just found in Ypsilanti at a Budget Stadium Towing car lot. Mom and daughter still missing.
Her father said that before she left, she took a bunch of electronics and put them in her bathtub running water over them.
According to Fox 2 in Detroit. What the hell is going on?
Here's the direct link to the article you pulled the info from
I know the authorities have said they don't believe Amanda is a danger to herself or Sapphire, but this new information IMO points directly towards either a) foul play or b) some kind of mental/psychological break. Either option could be potentially life threatening to them both.
That is very odd. Wonder if they are sure she left alone...Putting the electronics in water, could of been her attempt or someone else's to ruin all information on them. Strange time to leave with a little girl, too. (3 am)
Oh no. From the article linked above, I'm very very worried.
Poor mom seems to have gone off the deep end, I hope they find them before something really bad happens.
"My daughter was putting electronics in the tub thinking the cameras were watching them," he said. "She thinks somebody is watching her or something. She thinks the Internet is hacked or something."
7 Action News is being told that relatives were informed she was with a friend, but that has not yet been confirmed.
Amanda Hayward has long strawberry blond hair and blue eyes. She is 5'7" tall and weighs about 120 pounds.
Sapphire Palmer has long red hair and green eyes. She is 4' tall and weighs about 44 pounds. She was last seen wearing a purple nightgown.
Family members said Hayward used to live in Ypsilanti and that she has still has friends there.
well now, this isn't sounding good ....
Hayward was due in court this week to testify against an ex-boyfriend who is accused of beating her. She never made it to the court date.

HAMBURG TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A missing Michigan mother and her 7-year-old daughter might be with a 64-year-old male acquaintance in a red Ford Escape, police said Thursday morning.
Amanda Elizabeth Hayward, 30, of Hamburg Township, was last seen leaving her home in the area of Chilson and Bishop Lake roads Monday morning with her daughter, Sapphire Elizabeth Palmer. The car they were last seen in was found Wednesday at an apartment complex in Ypsilanti, but the two remain missing.
Hayward was due in court this week to testify against an ex-boyfriend who is accused of beating her, but she missed it.
Hamburg Township police said they believe she is with the acquaintance in a red 2001 Ford Escape -- Michigan license plate 2HVA18.
Anyone who sees the Escape is asked to call 911...
I believe the WDIV story linked above was recently updated--it now gives the "acquaintance's" name.
"Hamburg Township police said they believe she is with Douglas Stanko in a red 2001 Ford Escape -- Michigan license plate 2HVA18.
Police said Stanko is a registered sex offender in Michigan.
Anyone who sees the Escape is asked to call 911."
A missing Hamburg Township mother may be experiencing paranoia and police are hoping to find her and her missing 7-year-old daughter before harm comes to either one.
Police Chief Rick Duffany said Amanda Elizabeth Hayward and her daughter, Sapphire Elizabeth Palmer, are believed to now be traveling with a 64-year-old male acquaintance in a red 2001 Ford Escape bearing the Michigan license plate 2HVA18.
“She was having a pretty bad episode of paranoid Monday night into early Tuesday,” the chief said. “She thought people were spying on her through electronic devices.

“She took her phone and other electronic devices and threw them in a tub of water. She grabbed her daughter out of bed and left with her at 3 in the morning,” Duffany added. “We suspect that’s why she also threw her purse of the window” of her vehicle.
Hayward’s purse contained her belongings, including credit cards and cash.
Hayward’s father has reassured police that his daughter would not harm his granddaughter, but Duffany said police remain “quite concerned for the little girl” based on her mother’s possible mental instability. Livingston Daily efforts to reach Hayward's family have been unsuccessful.
"Douglas Steven Stanko, 64, is listed on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry with a conviction for two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct of a person under 13."
Found his entry on the sex offender registry also. I so hope they will somehow be found safe.
I've received three email alerts this morning from WDIV regarding this case. They update the original story as new information becomes available. I hope the vehicle is located soon as both the mother and daughter are vulnerable.
Oh my. The new news about her possible traveling companion turns my stomach.
I wonder if he is the ex-boyfriend?? :scared:
