17-year-old missing from Fairfax County under concerning circumstances

Amanda Oppedisano

A teen girl has been missing from Burke in Fairfax County since last Thursday, and multiple factors make her disappearance worrying, according to the The AWARE Foundation.

Amanda Oppedisano was last seen at her home in Burke around 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 17. She was last heard from at 6:30 p.m. that same day, in a text message where she said she was sick and "something was wrong."

Oppedisano recently had back surgery and still has difficulty getting around, The AWARE Foundation said in a release about her disappearance. She may be in need of assistance, and also suffers from severe depression.

She is 5-foot-2 and 105 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes.

Oppedisano may be in the Bristow/Manassas area, or may have traveled to Florida with a person whose identify is unknown. Anyone with information about her disappearance is asked to call police at 703-691-2131.
