TONIGHT AT 10: Target 2 Investigates Amber Wilde case at 20 years

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - This week marks a sad anniversary for family and friends of Amber Wilde. It's been 20 years since she was last seen alive.

Amber Wilde was 19 when she vanished. She was last reported to be seen at UW-Green Bay where she was a student.

Amber was pregnant at the time of her disappearance. Her family and police are convinced her pregnancy had to do with her disappearance.

Green Bay Police assigned two detectives to Amber's cold case about five years ago. At that time, officers thought they were close to solving the case.

Since that time, Target 2 Investigates has learned through unsealed documents the father of Amber's unborn child is considered a person of interest in what police consider to be a homicide.

Twenty years is a difficult milestone for Amber Wilde's family. They hoped to have answers by now.

"It's hard to believe it's been 20 years," said Laurie Ehnert, Amber Wilde's aunt. "I think maybe part of that is because our memories are still so fresh. You can still picture her face, and you know, hear her voice and stuff, I guess."

Amber Wilde's family and friends held a balloon release and remembrance this week. They continue to hold out hope for answers.

Police still receive tips on the Amber Wilde case. Tuesday on Action 2 News at 10, Target 2 Investigates the new leads and why police are convinced witnesses are lying to them.
