BPD is asking anyone with information about Ambrose's disappearance or the man pictured above to call 911 or contact them at (617) 343-4248. 

Boston Police described her as 5'2" with blue eyes and curly brown hair, and said she was wearing a red corduroy dress under a long white and grey coat. Ambrose had just moved to Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood from Wenham a week ago.

Ambrose was seen outside Hennessy’s Bar near Faneuil Hall around 11 p.m. Saturday night, leaving with a man who had been kicked out of the bar. Boston Police said Tuesday afternoon that that man was not involved in her disappearance. Police released the following timeline of Ambrose's known whereabouts that night on their website:

  • 11:42 PM: Approximately 40 minutes later, two unknown males are observed inviting Ms. Ambrose to walk with them in the area of Congress Street and State Street. One of the males appears to walk ahead while the second male places his arm around Ms. Ambrose and directs her towards the State Street MBTA Station.

  •  12:01 AM: Approximately 20 minutes later, additional video shows Ms. Ambrose being accompanied by that same male, still with his arm around her, exiting the Bunker Hill Community MBTA Station in Charlestown. The other male party is no longer observed in any surveillance video moving forward.

  •  12:13 AM: Approximately 10 minutes later, Ms. Ambrose and the unknown male are observed again in the area of Green Street walking together towards Bartlett Street. A short time later, phone records indicate Ms. Ambrose’s phone was in the general area of the Bunker Hill Housing Development.

Ambrose's twin sister Francesca spoke on Good Morning America Tuesday.

"I went to her apartment and she hadn't been there," she said. "It was like, set up for her to come home, with pajamas on the bed and everything."

Ambrose's employer, Toast Software, issued a statement calling Ambrose a "loved and valued member of their family." They said they're hoping the Boston community and police are able to locate her quickly and safely, and that they're sending prayers to the Ambrose family. 

 

BPD asked the public to refrain from sharing any images related to the case that were apparently floating around social media that could "impact the integrity of the investigation."
