(UPDATE) Missing Teenagers: Runaways Reach Week Two

According to family members, both Amanda Stoner and Greg Howell have returned home safely.  The Post wants to thank our readers for being vigilant, and assisting us in spreading the word on Amanda and Greg.

To the families, we are so thankful that your loved ones are safe and sound!


Two weeks ago today, two Ogallala teens, Amanda Stoner, 17, and Greg Howell, 17, were reported as missing. The community is working together to keep their faces in the public eye so that if they are seen, they may be brought back home to their families.

Very little is known about the two teens, suspected of running away. According to Stoners mother, Leanne Heble, the two teens are dating, Amanda took $500 from her bank account and no extra clothes before her disappearance. The two teens attended a party on January 18th. The party was the location where the two teens made contact with the police officers and tickets were written, Amanda being one who received a ticket.

Heble said, “Mostly I want her to know that her whole family is here and we love her and we miss her and we just want her home,” continuing,  we need to know if she is safe, that is the main thing, because right now were not even sure of that, and that is the scariest thing not knowing if your kid is OK.”

Please call the Ogallala Police Department if you discover any information regarding the location of the two teenagers.
