CAS ABOU BEACH, CURACAO - Just off the coast of Venezuela lies a small island called Curacao. Its white, sandy beaches, turquoise waters and breezy palm trees look like heaven. But one Katy family is going through hell right now, because their loved one is lost in paradise.

Amanda Waller and her husband, Allan, were snorkeling in the crystal clear Caribbean on June 25 when she vanished without a trace. Amanda had reportedly become tired of swimming, and was on her way back to shore to spend time with friends, but she never showed up.

An extensive search is currently underway, both on land and sea. A gofundme account has been set up to help to help pay for the family's stay on the island. So far, they've raised about $12,000 in just two days.

In the meantime, friends and family can only hope and pray they find their beloved Amanda.
