Nine months since her disappearance, a Drexel Hill mother of two remains missing with no new signs of her whereabouts.
Amanda De Guio, who just turned 25 on March 5, first went missing in June of last year. Amanda’s sister, Nicole De Guio, told NBC10 they had just returned from a family trip to Disney World in late May. Amanda, who lived with her three and five year old daughters as well as her mother, then left their Drexel Hill home in early June. She hasn’t been seen since then.
Nicole said her sister had problems with drugs and also at one point posted an ad on backpage.com for an escort service. Police also told NBC10 she allegedly falsely ordered a prescription at a local pharmacy and an arrest warrant was issued for her about a week after she went missing.

Nicole told NBC10 her sister appeared to be on her way to turning her life around shortly before her disappearance.
“She had gotten clean and had went through withdrawal,” Nicole said. “She told us about how she wanted to change her life and be a better mom and a better person. She was talking about getting a job.”
The family filed a missing persons report in August and a Facebook page was created. Despite a large community response including fliers and social media posts, there have been no new leads.
“We honestly don’t know,” Nicole said. “We’re very scared because I don’t know what she’s gotten herself into. My sister has never gone without checking in on her daughters. That’s why this is so unusual. Because she would’ve at least sent a text or phone call, even if she wasn’t coming home or something she would at least check in.”
Amanda is a white female standing 5-foot-2 and weighing between 115 and 120 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. She also has a diagonal scar on her upper and middle abdomen, piercings in both ears as well as several tattoos.
