A 14-year-old Kentucky girl was believed to have gone out with friends after arriving home from a movie. The next morning, Amy Haueter was nowhere to be found.
Now, nearly 18 years later, she still hasn't been heard from. She would be 32 today.
According to WDRB, Haueter's mother picked her up from a movie on Jan. 15, 2005 and brought her home. What happened next is what's in question.
Haueter was last seen at Cedar Springs Apartments in Fern Creek, Kentucky, where she lived with her mother.
"She wouldn't just not talk to anybody for 10 years," Amy's brother, Clinton, told WDRB in 2015. "You know she went out that night to meet some friends and never came back."
Still, nearly two decades later, Amy's mother, Becky Haueter, is holding out hope that her daughter is still out there somewhere.

"There are days that I hope that she's happy someplace," Becky Haueter told WAVE 3 in 2013, "that she's living with somebody that's taking care of her."
Haueter said the family put up fliers around town as detectives tirelessly tried to find her.
"Since that time, there was no results. No one knows where Amy is," said LMPD Detective Michael Perry.
Perry told WDRB that his department gets approximately 2,400 missing persons reports a year, and many are solved quickly. Unfortunately, Haueter's case isn't one of them.
"You have previous investigators notes that you're trying to decipher,” said Perry, “make heads or tails of what information is in the case load to determine what was relevant at the time to who collected the information and what may still be relevant that needs to be followed up on."
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Amy Haueter has a scar on the left side of her torso and her nose and ears are pierced.
