Friends of Amanda Webster, an Indianapolis resident and art teacher at Thompson Crossing Elementary School in Franklin Township, confirmed Friday that the 44-year-old has not returned from a vacation on the island.
Local Police Commissioner Antonio Lopez Figueroa activated an “Ashanti Alert” on Friday asking Puerto Rican citizens to help search for Webster, who reportedly went missing earlier this week.
“Amanda Lynn Webster was reported missing on Wednesday by the landlord of the place she is staying at, after realizing she failed to leave the home as agreed upon and left her belongings and a rented car on the property,” an English translation of a post from local police reads.
According to police, Webster is a 5’6″, 147-pound white woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was reportedly last seen at the Casa Parcha guest house near El Yunque National Park in Naguabo.
