    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 photo and vital statistics for Victor are posted below this case summary. 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.

    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.
