A car left in a no-parking zone on Fisherman’s Drive in HarborPark has led to a search for a missing woman who police believe is in danger.
A Kenosha Police officer wrote a ticket for a car with Michigan plates parked along the drive just before 5 p.m Wednesday.
When the vehicle was still on the drive hours later, officers returned to take a closer look at the vehicle at 10:15 p.m. They saw that there were keys locked in the car along with a phone and clothing, Lt. James Beller said.
Officers then contacted the registered owner of the car, who said his 39-year-old daughter Amanda Hanover was using the vehicle, and family had not spoken to her since March 18.
She has no known ties to the Kenosha area.
The woman’s family filed a missing-person report.
Police searched the area around the Lake Michigan shore without success. The Pleasant Prairie Police Department helped by using a drone to search the lakefront.
Hanover is described as 5 foot 4 inches tall, weighing 115 pounds. She has brown hair with a distinct red streak, blue eyes, and she may be wearing glasses. There is no clothing description available.
According to news reports from 2018, Hanover has gone missing in the past.
In March 2018 she disappeared from her home in Arizona. Her car was found in May 2018 in Calgary, Alberta.
A month later, according to news reports at the time, she was found in a “distressed state” in a small town in New York.
In an interview with a television station when Hanover was missing last year, her mother said Hanover was struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after a violent attack in 2017.
Anyone with information about Hanover should contact the Kenosha Police Department at 262-656-1234 or Detective Alfredson at 262-605-5203.
