On July 11, 2017, Amanda Dean's mother, Caroline Tokar, and her sister, Shannon Dean, both of Sandusky, reported that Amanda, 42, was missing, and they were concerned about her safety. The next day, however, Huron County Sheriff Todd Corbin told them that Amanda had been located and was safe, and the missing persons investigation was closed. Corbin told the family that Amanda didn’t want to speak to them. Caroline gave the Sheriff her phone number and asked him to make sure Amanda had it so she could contact the family. Unfortunately, no one has ever heard from Amanda in over five years.
Today, no one knows why Sheriff Corbin claimed to have conversed with Amanda and then later admitted to having no idea where she was. Local media sources like the Sandusky Register have tried questioning Corbin for answers. But he has been tight-lipped about the case. Corbin would eventually turn the case over to the Ohio BCI.
Amanda’s mother Caroline has refused to give up on finding her daughter. She has spoken to the media and anyone who is willing to listen to her share the details about Amanda’s disappearance. Caroline has also publicly said that Sheriff Corbin won’t provide her with any answers about her daughter.
Before Amanda disappeared, she had sent troubling texts to her sister Shannon that she feared her abusive boyfriend and was in fear of being killed. The Bureau of Criminal Investigation has since taken over Amanda’s case. Since Amanda’s disappearance, she has become a grandmother. Her son Joshua now had 2 children. He has said he misses his mother and that she doesn’t even know she’s a grandmother.
The family has since learned that an anonymous caller had contacted law enforcement and claimed that Amanda’s boyfriend was involved in her disappearance. For now, Fred Reer has not been charged with having anything to do with Amanda Dean’s disappearance. For this story, I spoke to Caroline Tokar and Shannon Dean about the disappearance of Amanda Dean. This is the first part of a two-part story. Be sure to listen to the conclusion next week.
