The local police department responded to a call on Tuesday at 11:34 A.M., saying that Amber, 21, was depressed and on the verge of ending her life.

According to a statement from the Anderson Police Department "[Amber], who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation."
