Search continues for man, woman and child reported missing


Equusearch says there are no new developments in their search for Amanda Jindra, her 5-year-old daughter Haley and her 20-year-old boyfriend, Atorian Buckner-Brown. All three have been missing since December 25, but volunteers aren't giving up. They'll be resuming their search at 8am Saturday.

"Anyone that's a mother would know how it feels when her child goes missing," said Amanda's mother, Sandra Jindra.

Montgomery County detectives tell us Amanda Jindra, 35, and Buckner-Brown just started dating a few weeks ago. He was last seen on Christmas Day at his mother's home on Legends Glen Drive where he lived.

"Opening presents and just relaxing afterwards and he got a phone call so he took it in the other room and came out and said he was going out for a little bit. I didn't think anything of it," said Atorian's brother, Isaac Buckner.

Amanda Jindra lived about three miles away with her son and daughter. Relatives tell us she dropped off her son with a friend on Christmas Day. They haven't seen her or her daughter since.

Detectives believe Jindra may have been going to a park with her daughter and boyfriend before they disappeared. Her vehicle, a 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander, is gone too.

Now volunteers with Texas Equusearch are combing the area, but they don't even know where to begin looking.

"Concerns are they could have gone off the road and they are some place where the car can't be seen and they could've gone off the road and ended up in the water somewhere," said Tim Miller with Texas Equusearch.

"We are praying for you and wherever you are we are coming for you. We're going to find you. Stay strong. We are on our way and I love you very much," Isaac Buckner said.

Investigators say the man, woman and child were last seen in a gray Mitsubishi Outlander with license plate DM2B066.

Authorities say at this time, there is no indication of foul play.
