Missing - A man's daughter disappears mysteriously into thin air. Where and when will he ever find her again?

Preview Snippet

My name is Arthur Gamble. I’m a science fiction writer, not a great one actually, but a writer nonetheless. I had one hit in my career that was picked up for a TV series. It was enough to keep me going and provide a little nest egg for my family. When the TV deal came through a few years ago, I was on top of the world, but recent events have turned my life from hopeful and positive to despair and anxiety.


That’s why I’m writing this book as I go along on my investigation. What investigation, you may ask. Unfortunately, that’s a question that I wish I didn’t have to answer. It would seem that my life has taken a turn much stranger than anything I’ve ever written about in my stories.


You see, my own daughter, Amy, has been mysteriously missing. She was only fourteen at the time, and that was two years ago. The police believe she ran away from home, but I know better. I was there when she disappeared and so was my wife.


We were shopping for clothes one day at the local mall. Well, they were shopping, I was just hanging around, making the best of it, just biding my time until we all went to the movie that was scheduled to start in about thirty more minutes or so. My wife, Heather, and Amy both went into the dressing room so Amy could try on some clothes. I was right outside pacing back and forth, impatiently as usual, as I tended to do, when I had gotten stuck in the middle of a shopping trip.


It was about five minutes later when my wife came out screaming, “She’s gone, she’s gone!” Of course, I had no idea what she was talking about, so I gently grabbed her and not so calmly asked, “Heather, what do you mean? Where’s Amy?” I took my hands off her arms and ran inside the dressing room. There was no one there, nothing but clothes.


Again, I asked, “Heather, where is she? I was standing out here the whole time, I know she didn’t walk by.”


With a look of shock, Heather could only say, “She just disappeared, Arthur. Just disappeared into thin air.”


Of course, what else could I say, but that it was impossible? My wife hasn’t been the same since. She hasn’t gone off the rails or anything, but whenever our daughter is mentioned she gets a blank stare, as if she were looking off into another universe.
