Details of Disappearance

Amanda disappeared from West Bloomfield, Michigan on December 26, 2008. She was abducted by her non-custodial father, Victor Nathan Adlai. A felony warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued for him on February 24, 2009. Amanda's parents had divorced earlier in 2008 after a fifteen-year marriage. They had joint custody of her. Her mother has since obtained full legal and physical custody.

A photo of Victor is posted with this cast summary. His date of birth is January 3, 1970, making him 38 years old at the time of Amanda's abduction. He's described as Caucasian, 5'10 and 170 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. He may wear eyeglasses. He is a doctor, specializing in anesthesiology, and he was born in Russia.

Victor and Amanda may be in Moscow, Russia. Amanda called her mother and said they were in Russia, and Victor sent Amanda's mother several emails after the abduction, but she hasn't heard from them since then. The child's whereabouts are unknown and her case remains unsolved.
