A Valley City woman who went missing last week has made contact with her mother.
Amber Glatt, 22, a Valley City State University student who has been missing since July 4, called her mother from a pay phone late Monday evening. It was the first time anyone had heard from her in nearly a week.
â€śItâ€™s a huge relief,â€ť Glattâ€™s Mother, Amy Rines, said late Monday night. â€śI will see her tomorrow. The airports are closed tonight or else weâ€™d be going tonight.â€ť
Glatt has had bouts of reoccurring amnesia since suffering a head injury in 2010.
Glattâ€™s boyfriend reported her missing Wednesday evening when he found only her cell phone and a note where she wrote she had amnesia.
Rines believes her daughterâ€™s disappearance was related to another amnesia episode.
â€śI donâ€™t even know what hour it is now, just recently, she called collect,â€ť Rines said. â€śOur number was in her car because I always made her put our phone number in her glove compartment. That was the only number that she had and she called collect.â€ť
Glatt allegedly left Valley City in her grey Mitsubishi Lancer, and had reportedly been seen in Wahpeton and Tower City. Her mother declined to give out her whereabouts because â€śI just donâ€™t want media swamping her when she has no memory.â€ť
Valley City Police Detective Mark McDonald said shortly after midnight Tuesday morning that law enforcement in the area where she had called from had yet to confirm her location.
â€śItâ€™s premature for us to give out a lot of information if we donâ€™t even have her person,â€ť McDonald said. â€śWe feel good where weâ€™re at.â€ť
