‘It’s baffling to me why she wouldn’t reach out to me,’ Amelia’s mother, Amy Robinson, told The Oregonian.    

Her mother explained how she had been spending hours each day driving the area looking for the pair of them. 

She has spent time putting up hundreds of flyers along with various pleas for help on social media.    

‘I just want my daughter to be happy and healthy,’ Robinson said. ‘She means the world to me, and we just want her to come home. Day or night I will come and get her. She just has to make that call.’ 

‘She’s been battling leukemia since February, and it’s necessary for her to beat the cancer. I mean, we’re in the midst of fighting for her life,’ she told KATU.

The family are desperate for information and are offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to Amelia's return
