Missing AZ woman found in Niskayuna


An Arizona woman missing for three months has been found in Niskayuna. Deputy Police Chief Michael Stevens calling this the wildest case he’s ever seen.

38-year-old Amanda Hanover was reported missing from her home in Gilbert, AZ in March. She had last been seen by her step-sister in California. Her car was found abandoned at the University of Calgary in April.  Hanover was then located in Niskayuna on Saturday.

Police say they received several calls about a woman on Rosendale Road trying to get into vehicles saying she was in danger.  When police arrived the woman didn’t know her own name.  Her only belongings were 2 Amtrak tickets and a post-it note with 3 phone numbers on it.

One of those numbers led police to Hanover’s uncle who lives outside of Utica. He put police in touch with Hanover’s mother who also didn’t immediately recognize her daughter until seeing a picture of her tattoo.

Hanover was transported to Ellis Hospital where she is currently being treated.
Police ask anyone with information that could help fill in the blanks to contact them right away.
