Police come up empty-handed during search of missing woman Amber Ellis on First Line Road

Police said the search for missing woman Amber Ellis at a First Line Road address is over after a heavy police presence descended on the property Tuesday morning.

The OPP Criminal Investigation Branch searched the property Tuesday morning and left by late Tuesday afternoon, saying they failed to find Ellis’s remains.

The OPP had earlier warned the public to expect a heavy police presence on the property Tuesday in relation to Ellis’s disappearance.

The search was conducted with assistance from the OPP Emergency Response Team as part of the two-year-old missing person investigation.

“No human remains were found at the search location,” the OPP said in a press release issued late Tuesday afternoon, while refusing to answer further questions or provide further information on the search or the case.

“No additional information regarding the details or outcome of the search will be provided, as this remains an ongoing and active investigation.”

Police said the tenants of the property were not considered suspects in the investigation.

Police said in an earlier press release they had expected to be there throughout the week before abruptly wrapping up the investigation on the property late Tuesday afternoon (yesterday).

Amber, who was from Hagersville and had ties to Six Nations, was reported missing on Mar. 8, 2021. Police had searched a Sixth Line Road property last summer as part of the investigation into her whereabouts and are offering a $50,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest or conviction.

Six Nations Police assisted in the search.
