The Trail Went Cold – Episode 75 – Amanda Gallion and Patrick Ghering

October 13, 1997. Gillette, Wyoming. 14-year old Amanda Gallion leaves her home for school, but never arrives and is reported missing. Suspicion turns towards Amanda’s 20-year old boyfriend, Patrick Ghering, who denies any knowledge of her disappearance. Six days later, Patrick goes missing himself after his abandoned vehicle is discovered by the side of the road. Over the next several years, Amanda would be looked at as a potential victim of notorious child predator, Nathaniel Bar-Jonah, and spark controversy when a jailhouse snitch attempts to pin her disappearance on another convicted murder. However, the leads never pan out, and no trace of Amanda or Patrick is ever found. Are their disappearances connected, or did they both go missing under entirely different circumstances? We explore all the different angles of this baffling story on this week’s edition of “The Trail Went Cold”.
