Amanda Jones, the 9 month pregnant St Louis woman, has still not been found and investigators have intensified the effort to find her.
Police have received about 70 tips regarding the disappearance of Amanda Jones, a nine months pregnant Pevely woman missing since Sunday, but say they still have no evidence of a crime or any indication of what happened to her.
A loan administrator at Eagle Bank in Festus, Jones, 26, was last seen at the horse-show grounds of the Hillsboro Civic Center on Highway 21 in central Jefferson County about 5 p.m. Sunday. Police found her unlocked car there but said it offered no clues.
Police have not recovered Jones’ purse or cell phone.
Jefferson County Sheriff Oliver “Glenn” Boyer said a 20-person task force is investigating the case.
In a press conference Thursday morning, Boyer said police had intensified the search for Jones overnight Wednesday searching the property near and adjacent to the Civic Center on foot, using canine units and from the air, but had found no clues.
“We have no physical evidence, nor do we have any statements from anyone to indicate that a crime has been committed,” Boyer said.
He added, however, that police considered Jones’ disappearance to be suspicious.
“We are treating this as a very serious incident,” Boyer said.
