DERRY, N.H. — Exactly six months ago, Amanda Grazewski of Nashua, New Hampshire disappeared.
NH Police and Amanda’s family are concerned the single mom could have been a victim of foul play.
“We hope for the best, but prepare for the worst,” said Jessica Grazewski, Amanda’s mother.
Jessica has not heard from or seen her daughter for half a year and says the deafening silence is breaking her heart.
“We just try to be strong," said Jessica. “Wanting to know, one way or another. We love her. We just want her home.”
Amanda’s young life has been difficult.
Heroin addiction, prostitution and homelessness were all issues confronting the single mom. But her family never left her side.
“She really did want to get well and throw herself into it. But unfortunately, addiction is a disease and it just took hold of her, full throttle,” Jessica said.
Early in the morning of March 17th, 2020, St, Patrick’s Day, Amanda disappeared from an apartment building at 18 Birch Street in Derry, NH.
Amanda had been staying at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua, but a friend had brought her to the Birch Street apartment in Derry, about a half hour away, to spend the night.
At least four other people were at the apartment when Amanda arrived and police believe some were taking drugs.
In the morning, Amanda was gone with only the clothes on her back. She left behind her cellphone, her purse, and other belongings.
Derry Police have searched the apartment building and nearby woods but they have not found any sign of Amanda.
“The fact that it’s been so long, no one’s heard from her, makes us wonder if there’s some aspect of foul play that is associated with it,” said Derry Police Captain Vern Thomas.
“The circumstances right now are very alarming to us,” Captain Thomas added.
Amanda’s family is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to finding their daughter.
