A Kenai woman has been missing for nearly a week.

Amanda May Guillemette, 35, was reported missing Tuesday after she failed to show up for work Monday, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Guillemette is a mother to six children and her family has made several attempts to reach her via cell phone and text with no success, according to a missing person flier.

She could be driving a red 2003 Pontiac Aztec with the license plate ELJ231 according to a media release. She is 5-feet 2-inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes according to the release.

A flier lists Irene Pipkin as a person to call with information about Guillemette’s location, she can be reached at 907-252-9911. The Soldotna post of the Alaska State Troopers can be reached at 907-262-4453.

A Summer of the Missing

This is getting peculiar. The family of four, the 30 year old lady reported missing and found deceased the same day at the Skilak campground and now this young lady.

Not knowing is very disturbing. Please keep these folks in your thoughts and prayers.

At a loss for a term for what you would call this localized rash of multiple missing cases, a cluster, a phenomenon?

What has changed, why now, how could this be interpreted?

Statistically the the odds would not have been too high that 6 individuals would go missing from our small population base in less than a month's time.

Hoping for good outcomes, along with answers.

I agree.

I agree. When you say 6 individuals, it sounds improbable, but when you consider it was 2 incidents, I guess it's no less likely to happen at similar times. It seems like there are a lot of oddly unsolved disappearances around here (such as the Mt. Marathon runner in 2012). A lot can happen in the wilderness. Communicate your plans and keep an eye on each other.

Good Outcome

Hope the missing four are found safe, soon.
