Amber Portwood ‘Distraught’ Over Missing Fiancé

As it turns out, Amber was the one who had called the police to report Gary missing and has been a mess ever since. 

“She has been trying to locate him and went to the police,” a source told Us Weekly. “Distraught” and worried, the Teen Mom star apparently hasn’t heard from him for a few days, despite the recent announcement of their engagement. 

“She doesn’t know where he is. Hasn’t heard from him and he hasn’t communicated with her or his family. She reported him missing to local police on June 10. His parents haven’t heard from him either.”

Everything about their relationship feels like it’s moving at rapid speed. First, the pair made their debut as a couple on an episode of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter the week before. Gary met all of Amber’s co-stars via Zoom

That was just a few days before the news broke of their engagement, though the proposal took place “within the last two weeks.”

Why Would Gary Take Off?

If there was anything wrong between the pair, that would be considered news to Amber, according to those closest to her. 

“She’s really, really happy,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’ve been in couple’s therapy and talk about everything. They’re being very proactive in their relationship and are doing the work to prevent problems before they start.”

Here’s hoping this all works out for the best, that nothing more sinister is going on with Gary.
