Details of Disappearance Amanda ran away from her Orangefield, Texas home on April 28, 1991. She left with her 24-year-old boyfriend, John Daniel Fouts, and eventually settled in Springfield, Missouri. She posed as John's wife, called herself Mandy Wells, and said she was 21. They had a child, named Meri, in 1992.
John's mother, Sandra Jean Menard, raised Meri to adulthood. After Menard died in 2009, Meri and her aunt, Fouts's sister, found Amanda's diary in Menard's safe and it had Amanda's real name and the names of her family members written in it. The two women contacted the police, who took DNA from Meri and tested it against Amanda's mother. The DNA matched and Amanda was identified in February 2012.
