Previous story: The police have found Amy Ahonen’s Jeep at mile mark 264 on Highway 6 along Clear Creek in Colorado.
Amy, 38, has been missing since last Friday at her home at 41st and Albion Way. She wasn’t reported missing until Sunday morning by her roommate because her roommate thought that Amy had gone to celebrate her 38th birthday on Saturday at a friends house.
After the report was filed, the police found that her gray Jeep had received a computer check by a patrol vehicle on Friday night and a physical check by police on Sunday found the Jeep still there with her personal belongings still inside.
Amy’s sister told Denver News that Highway 6 was her favorite scenic drive.
