Amanda Jones Still Missing But Not Forgotten

Few clues in Amanda Jones case
By Tim Rowden

A year ago Amanda Jones kissed her daughter and parents goodbye after attending a Sunday church service in Festus and drove off to meet with the man she believed was the father of her unborn child.

She was nine months pregnant and was supposed to be home in a couple of hours.
She never returned.

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Pevely woman's disappearance, a case that grabbed the attention of local and national media last summer and a case that continues to frustrate police.

Friends and family will hold a memorial service today at 6 p.m. at Calvary Assembly of God Church, 1650 Calvary Church Road in Festus. Her mother, Bertha Propst, says they will release purple balloons - purple because that was her daughter's favorite color.

Police still don't have any solid clues in their search for Jones, who disappeared only days before she was due to deliver her second child, a son. Jones was 26, a divorced mother of a 4-year-old girl, who now lives with her father in St. Louis, and worked as a loan administrator at Eagle Bank in Festus.

She had gone to the Hillsboro Civic Center to meet with Bryan Lee Westfall.

Police found her unlocked car on the Civic Center parking lot but said it offered no clues.
