The remains of activist Amber Evans have been discovered in a river two months after she disappeared. Amber was a Columbus, Ohio social justice advocate that went missing on January 28.


The Columbus Ohio Police confirmed that on March 23, 2019, they recovered a body from the Scioto River. After conducting a thorough investigation with the help of the Columbus Police Special Victims Bureau and the Columbus Police Dive team, they confirmed that the body recovered was positively identified as 28-year-old Evans.

Amber Evans' disappearance on January 28 launched a nationwide search and was continuously being investigated by law enforcement. Her car was found near a parking lot just across the Scioto River in West Downtown. She allegedly had a fight with her boyfriend the afternoon of her disappearance, but he is not considered a suspect in the case. There are no known physical abuse issues between Evans and her boyfriend.


Amber worked for the Juvenile Justice Coalition and was an activist working with the People's Justice Project and March for our Lives before her disappearance.


On March 14, 2019, the Nash County Sherrif's Office in North Carolina revealed that the body of Diana Alejandra Keel, 38, was found. During her disappearance, her husband was the last to see her alive and he is currently considered a person of interest in the case.


Nash County Sherrif Keith Stone revealed that Lynn Keel, Diana's husband, has been brought in to their office for questioning. Her husband was asked to identify her remains after they were found.

A worker for the Department of Transportation discovered her decomposing body in a wooded area just 30 miles from where she disappeared. Her car was found nowhere near her body, as it was parked at home.

The police found out about her disappearance after her employer said she had not reported to work for days. Her husband allegedly said that she "leaves from time to time and will stay gone a couple of days." This is the reason why he failed to tell investigators that she was missing, but the investigators believe that there is foul play involved in her death.
