Sadly until the person who knows the truth speaks the truth the answers and details won't change.
There was nothing new detailed.
Did Amy to to The Bridge and The Bridge aftercare group around February or March or so of 1989? She looks so familiar, buy her name is not familiar other than in the news stories. She looks like a girl who was in my aftercare group at the bridge. Many years ago and I was 14 and I thought I remembered the name Rachelle, but Amy looks similar. I sure hope this case is solved. So sad. My guess is she never made it out of the farm or wherever she was out of town.
I live about 5 minutes outside of Osseo. I also doubt Amy was at the gas station unless it was in a different location than it is now. One time, I was sitting in Panera Bread in Maple Grove and a retired cop who worked on Amy's case was in there. He overheard me talking about my law enforcement training and struck up a conversation with me. The retired cop doesn't think Amy was at the gas station, either.
Why do you think no one saw them leave?The fact that the last person to see someone in a disappearance is almost always the person to cause the disappearance... I believe too that she never left that hobby farm.. at least not alive.
First of all - I hope from the bottom of my heart that the fate of this girl comes to light and if needed justice is served.
I've read this whole tread and many of the links/sources. I may have missed something though.
1. Out of where came the idea of sextrafficing? Was that a known or common thing/problem in the area? (At that time)
2. While understand and appreciate some user is advocating for the family and their situation, I just must say that people LIE, with intent or mistakenly. Any people, but most do for reasons. I cant seem to figure out why LE would either lie or be sloppy in their reports or job. What would be their motive or gain?
3. If there's many mediaarticles with false information I wonder why they arent diminshed once an for all by the implicants by a live press-conference.
4. This case is nearly 30 years old, I'm not sure I believe that releasing all (or almost) of the policematerial on the case will be an advanges for the potentiel wrongdoer, as one user indicate.
5. I miss details or knowledge of this girls 'normal' behavour. Was it in her caracter to lose patience and leave a car/father just because he was in the bathroom/getting gas? And was it normal for the father to leave his children in the car and be gone for a longer period of time, so that it would be 'excuseble' for a child to leave after waiting a certain time? In my humble oppionen it is odd to assume she would leave the car and start walking home - but that may not be odd for her and her family. Though I cant find anything where the family explain what would be normal or not normal for them (in this matter)?
6. Is there anyone who can request the policereports? It seemed one user wanted to but had family emergencies in the way. Can anyone else get it? I would like to contribute. However I'm from out of country so I have no idea how to do so?
Forgive my gramma and perhaps spelling issues. I hope my writing is understandable.

Details of Disappearance
- Medical ConditionsAmy suffers from headaches and occasional seizures due to a medical condition causing pressure on her brain. She may also have bipolar disorder, although she had not been officially diagnosed with the condition by 1989. She is also required to take allergy medication.
Amy and her father, Marshall Midden, stopped at the Holiday Inn gasoline station in Osseo, Minnesota at 4:30 p.m. on August 5, 1989. They were on their way home from a day trip to the family farm at the time; they lived in 9700 block of Hemlock Lane north in Maple Grove, Minnesota, two miles from the gas station.
Midden went inside the station for a brief moment to use the bathroom. When he returned, he saw that she had disappeared from their parked vehicle. She has never been heard from again.
Authorities initially believed Amy ran away from home. She had been having some problems that summer and ran away repeatedly, but always returned home on her own after a short time period. She is no longer classified as a runaway. It's possible that had a seizure while Midden was inside the building and became disoriented as a result. She may have walked away from their car afterwards.
It's worth noting that no other witnesses besides her father reported seeing Amy at the gas station that day, and police were unable to independently verify that she had been there.
Amy remains missing and her case is unsolved. Her family has kept the same telephone number since her disappearance in case she attempts to contact them. Her case received additional attention in the spring of 2014, after authorities searched her parents' farm in Isanti County, Minnesota and their residence in Maple Grove for information in her case, but the searches turned up nothing of interest. Amy's parents maintain their innocence in her case and her mother says she thinks her daughter was taken for sex trafficking.
