Details: At approximately 2:45 p.m., Tuesday, July 26, 2011, deputies with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported abandoned vehicle in the 13900 block of Homestead Rd. When deputies arrived on the scene, they located a 2004, dark green Chevrolet Trail Blazer, bearing Georgia license plates, abandoned in the business parking lot just north of Greens Bayou. Upon inspecting the vehicle, deputies discovered that the front passenger door window had been broken out and that a substantial amount of blood was visible inside the vehicle. Homicide investigators were contacted and responded to the scene.
The vehicle was registered to Amber Elkins, who currently lives in the Spring area. Homicide investigators spoke with Elkins’ family and learned that she was last seen on Sunday evening, July 24. Attempts to contact her since that time have been unsuccessful. Based on the circumstances, HCSO Homicide Investigators believe Amber Elkins may be a victim of foul play.
Amber Chantel Elkins is a twenty year old, white female, 5’08” to 5’09” inches tall, with black hair, and brown eyes. Elkins has two “stars” tattooed on her wrist and the word “ACE” tattooed on her ankle.
