Help Sought To Find Detroit Woman, Missing For 3 Weeks

DETROIT (WWJ) – A missing Detroit woman’s husband believes a neighborhood “drug lord” may have been responsible for the disappearance of his wife who hasn’t been seen since Aug. 13.

Amber Smith, 29, was last seen at around noon that day at her home in the 5500 block of Radnor in Detroit; and police are reaching out to the public for help in trying to find her.

Dennis Gentz says that Smith, who history of heroin and crack use, is not the most upstanding citizen — but she’s still his wife.

“She’s not, you know, the greatest person in the world. She has a criminal record and she’s a drug addict, but that doesn’t make her less of a person,” Gentz  told WWJ Newsradio 950. “This Thursday will be three weeks. No one has seen her, no one has heard from her.”

Gentz said there has been a neighborhood drug lord terrorizing them and he thinks that man either snatched his wife or murdered her.

Smith is bipolar and schizophrenic and had not taken her medication for almost three weeks prior to her disappearance, according to police.

Gentz said he grew concerned when he discovered she had left her keys and purse behind.

She didn’t leave me. The night before we’d talked and she said she had to go to her mother’s and she would take the bus,” Gentz said. “My phone was broken and it got shut off, because my truck got stolen and I didn’t get that sorted out ’til the Monday after. I called her mother’s house to see if she was there…She wasn’t there.”

Smith is described as an American Indian female; 5 feet, 6 inches tall with long, black hair. She has a small black flower tattoo on her lower back.

Anyone who has seem Smith or knows of her whereabouts is asked to call Detroit Police Department’s Criminal Investigations at 313-596-5540
