Please Help Find These Children!!!!

A man I once knew has done something really stupid. He has abducted his children and disappeared. Please keep your eyes open and help us get these kids back to their mothers. David has taken his daughters from his second marriage and his son from his first marriage. The more eyes we have out there the faster we will find them. His son happened to mention to a friend that he may soon be moving to Florida so we think he might be headed there. He has had them for more than a week now and has a really good head start so they need all the help they can get.

Lindon, UT


LINDON, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Lindon police are searching for two missing girls who were allegedly taken by their non-custodial father, David Steele Fratcher.

14 year old Amber Marie Fratcher is described as Caucasian, 5 ft 4 inches tall, with blue eyes and long brown hair that goes down to the middle of her back.

Amber was last seen wearing blue jean capris and a gray sweatshirt. Amber has a small scar right below her right eye and often wears glasses. Amber also has both ears pierced.

Amanda Mae Fratcher is described as Caucasian, 11 years old, 5 ft tall, and weighs approximately 125 lbs. Amanda has blue eyes and shoulder length brown hair. Amanda was last seen wearing a blue and cream V neck shirt and gray jeans.

Police say the children were endangered as the father had allegedly made suicidal comments at some time in the past.

Police added that they have no information to indicate that the Fratcher currently has intent to harm himself or the children.

According to police, the children are considered endangered because their location and physical condition is unknown to their custodial parent and as they are potentially traveling with very little, if any resources or money, although the Father did apparently take some clothing and supplies.

Fratcher and the children were also believed to be living in the van, and with winter weather conditions, police were concerned for their health and safety.

Lindon Police, with the assistance of the Orem Department of Public Safety, the Utah County Child Abduction Response Team (CART) and the Utah County JCAT Team served a search warrant at a home in Orem on Wednesday evening.

Police found evident to suggest that David Fratcher plans to take the children from their mother potentially re-locate with them to an unknown new city.

Police say an ongoing investigation into computer and cell-phone records from the search warrant was underway in an effort to learn of potential locations where the children may be.

Anyone with information on Fratcher or the girls was asked to contact the Lindon police at 801-229-7070.
