Circumstances

Jael Tiara Hamblen was last seen in the Trailside Loop. It was located area in southern Anchorage, Alaska on October 11, 2014. She and her roommate, Kendra Vincent Estrada, went out to dinner together and returned home before 10:00 p.m.

Estrada’s mother was babysitting Estrada’s children and Hamblen’s infant son at the time. Hamblen was thinking of going out again. But her roommate went to bed.

That night, Hamblen was upset because a man she was interested in had rejected her. She texted a male friend at 1:40 A.M. She was saying she was crying and wanted to get together with him. She exchanged text messages with another man shortly after 3:00 a.m. This is the last time anyone heard from her.

Estrada texted Hamblen the next day at 10:32 A.M. Hamblen didn’t respond. At noon, Estrada knocked on her door and discovered she was gone and the bed was unmade.

Hamblen had taken her purse and cellular phone with her. But she left her vehicle. It is described as a 1998 Ford Expedition with the Alaska license plate GFB641. It was parked in the driveway. (She didn’t have a driver’s license, but did have a learner’s permit.)

Estrada initially assumed Hamblen had gone out the night before and stayed out all night. Or she left home early in the morning. She texted her twice during the afternoon, but got no response and calls to her phone went straight to voice mail. Hamblen has never been heard from again.

Later analysis of her phone showed that neither of Estrada’s text messages on October 12 were received. This means Hamblen’s phone was either turned off or the battery had died. She was reported missing by her mother on October 14.

In March 2015, hikers found Hamblen’s black purse buried in the snow along a trail in Chugiak, Alaska and turned it into the police. Inside it was her Social Security card and her iPhone 5. Authorities don’t believe Hamblen placed it there herself; the weather on the night she disappeared was below freezing, and she didn’t enjoy hiking.

Hamblen was born in Washington state and spent the first fourteen months of her life in foster care before being adopted. She was raised her in Wasilla, Alaska, and she also spent time in Washington with her father after her parents divorced.

Growing up, Hamblen she struggled with cognitive, social and developmental delays. She was eventually diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Hamblen’s mother stated she began rebelling in her early teens. Hamblen dropped out of high school. She and ran away from home for the first time at age seventeen.

However, Hamblen’s family stated the birth of her son gave her purpose in life. It led her to become a more responsible person. They don’t believe she would have abandoned him. Her mother filed for custody shortly after Hamblen’s disappearance and is now raising the boy.

Authorities are investigating Hamblen’s case as a possible homicide. It remains unsolved.

Appeal

And when she began doing that, she went missing. It makes no sense that Hamblen would walk out of her life when she had her baby and began to find meaning in life. Something happened to her. Who would have a motive to harm her?
