OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich (WXYZ) - It's been nearly 30 years since Amy Rose Hurst walked out of her Waterford Township home with a new husband, moved to Florida and then disappeared.
She left two children, ages 8 and 10. Son Jeff. who is 39. now says he always wondered what happened and a few years ago he started digging. That led him to a website about missing people, where he found out about a woman whose body was found back by some fishermen in 1982, 27 miles off shore and deep in the gulf of Mexico.
She was wrapped in a bedspread and an afghan and had a chain around her waist and a cement block attached to that.
Jeff recognized the afghan. It was like one his grandma used to make and he recognized the bedspread that his mom used to have on the bed at home.
He called police in Florida and they took Jeff's DNA and realized the woman who was found was his mom and the case, which has been cold all these years, has been re-opened.
Police from Florida are coming to Michigan to talk to the family and to anyone who could know something about Amy Rose Hurst. They want to find out who did this and that is exactly what Jeff and his sister want as well.
