All of us here in the Lost Souls of America family, including our listeners, know what it means to feel passionate about missing persons investigations. It’s an empathy that pulls on our heartstrings and makes us want to do whatever we can with the skills we have. We know that we have to look out for each other, and one of our own needs our help.
A missing persons investigator disappeared in the summer of 2019, and still has not been located nearly 3 years later. The 37 year old mother of two leaves her sister’s home in Louisville Kentucky around 1am that August 13th, walking on foot the short trek back to their mothers’ house. What happens next has been heavily speculated on, but one thing is for sure- someone somewhere knows where she is today.
Join us this week as we sit down with Andrea’s family as they share with us details about who Andrea is as a person and new details surrounding the night Andrea went missing and letting us know there are persons of interest in the case.
Erin Knabel, Andrea’s sister, is a divorced mother of 3, a former IT specialist and currently a supervisor. She loves her job, her family, and being a mom and aunt. In her free time she likes to spend time with her kids and go on hikes (just like me!) She used to love doing these activities with her sister Andrea, so now that she’s gone she feels the next best thing is doing all she can to find her by raising awareness for Finding Andrea. Michael Knabel, Andrea’s father has been married for 16 years to his second wife and is a proud grandfather. He went to the University of Louisville as Andrea did, both getting business degrees from the same Alma Mater. He’s been in financial investments for 30 years. Erin and Mike have worked tirelessly from the moment Andrea went missing, often putting themselves in dangerous situations to follow every single tip and lead no matter how small.
