BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Hope is what's driving this tight knit community.

"Heavenly Father, please help us bring our baby girl Amber Whited back home to us safely," said her family.

Their hope is that someone may answer their prayers, and show them a sign that may lead to the mother of two.

"If you need us in the backwoods, we'll go. If you need us in the swamps, we're there," said Amber's aunt Martha Allen.

Martha tells Action News the search will go on, even though she says Glynn County Police asked them to scale back a bit.

"They asked us and our answer was 'hell no.' If this was one of your kids you would be there, you would be out there looking everyday," she said.

Since Amber's disappearance on Tuesday, friends and family have been combing the areas in and around the county, by car and on foot. One friend tells us she even wore her lucky pair of socks.

"She has tattooed on the back of her neck, the peace sign, the love sign and the music sign and I wore them today for her," said Deseree Avery.

If that's not enough, hundreds of posters have been plastered all over local businesses, hoping for at least a silent witness.

Glynn County Police say they're focusing their search in Brunswick, and are tracing her steps, to find a path that may lead them to Amber.
