Home » Amysena Chappell, 18: Hasn’t Been Seen Since 2004
On September 7, 2004, Amysena Chappell traveled more than six hours away from the Bay Area in central California to Hawthorne. Some reports state she took the Amtrak to visit loved ones in the Southern California area. Afterward, Amysena was supposed to contact her family in Antioch to inform them about the train arrival information upon her return.
However, relatives became concerned when they didn’t hear from Amysena. When time continued to move forward without updates, they contacted the authorities. A quick search of this case doesn’t bring up any further updates besides stating an 18-year-old girl vanished all those years ago. Whether she made any other stops or met up with someone along the way is unknown, as is information about her personal life and social circle. There also hasn’t been any word about the friends or family members she was visiting in Hawthorne nor what Amysena Chappell’s last movements were in the 24 to 48 hours leading up to her disappearance.
Further, it has not been shared if Amysena was traveling with a cell phone or even made it to the Amtrak station. This leaves details about the investigation into her last calls before vanishing a mystery, as well. The Charley Project also noted it was unclear if Nesbitt was officially named as a suspect in the investigation.
