“Wednesday night, he and I Facetimed. He was able to get college basketball tickets. He and I Facetimed, while he was there and that was at 7:30 Georgia time,” she said.

That was the last time Amber said she talked to her husband.

“He never made it back to his hotel and it’s just an open investigation, for a missing person,” Millard said.

She said Baton Rouge Police are going off several clues.

“We do have transactions that his debit card has been used. His phone was located about four blocks from the hotel. He was staying at the Marriott right in downtown,” said Millard.

Millard said Baton Rouge Police have surveillance footage of someone of a different race using his debit card.

“It shows a male using his card,” Millard said. “That’s all. We’re just at a standstill for more camera footage to be presented.”


Millard said the last few days have been tough for her and her family, especially for their daughter.

“He just attended the Daddy/Daughter dance with his daughter. He’s a good daddy. I go from, you know, one minute, not accepting reality to gut wrenching sick to my stomach,” she said.

Right now, she’s hoping for the best.

“I’m praying for a miracle, that he makes it home safely to us,” said Millard.

Millard told Spruill that police are going through security video of the area. They’re asking anyone with any information, to call CRIMESTOPPERS- (225) 344-7867.

Millard is 5′9, 180 pounds and was wearing a green ball cap, black shirt and blue jeans.
