Gary Shirley tells the 911 operator that Amber Portwood told him to ‘call the police and find her body in the garage’

We’ve received an audio file of Gary Shirley‘s 911 call about Amber Portwood yesterday, after her alleged suicide attempt, and it is pretty scary. Gary called the 911 dispatcher at 11:34AM and said, “Hi, I just spoke with my girlfriend, and she had said something to me, Amber Portwood, she said something to me that she is having a hard time with her life. That to call the police and find her body in the garage and I don’t know what to do, I’m getting a hold of you because I don’t want her to kill herself.”

Leah‘s father remained calm while delivering Amber’s address and phone number to the operator. “This was about 5 minutes ago, I called my mom to go visit because at first I was like she has made several, she has said this several times, and she isn’t answering my phone calls and she said call the police so they can find my body in the garage.” Gary continues to explain in a conversational tone, “I called her back several times and she didn’t answer, and you don’t tell someone to call the police if you really don’t want them to call the police.”

Gary goes on to explain that his mother, Carol Zizak, is going to check on her, then gets confused when the operator asks what kind of car she is driving. He assumes she means Amber, and then gets flustered. “Will she be on foot?” asks the operator about Gary’s mom. He misunderstands: “She is going to hang herself!”

Then he realizes the misunderstanding and the operator says they will send someone over.

Amber was apparently found “conscious and coherent” when authorities came to her house and there were no “noticeable signs of injury.” Meanwhile, Gary threw a BBQ at his house last night while Amber recuperated in the hospital. Hopefully baby Leah is doing okay!

For those of who think that Amber is abusive and needs her daugther taken away from her then so does Gary for being verbal abusive to Amber

I am not one to make light of someone thinking of commiting suicide, but since it is Amber you have to wonder. She has only showed how much being in the limelight means to her. It means more to her than her own daughter does. If she was serious about getting custody back, this would not benefit her case. A young, celebrity seeking, domestic abusive, pill and alcoholic dependent nutcase would never get custody. She wants her daughter to stay with the father because she in unable, incapable and does not want the responsibility of taking care of her daughter. She actually believes she will be the next Kardashian (sad that young girls see being a total A-SHOLE and W-ORE is the way to fame). Her daughter is only good to her for photo shoots, so she can play the role of the caring parent. NOT! The father doesn’t fare any better. If he had his daughter’s best interest at heart he would 1)get a real job!. 2)tell Amber if she doesn’t get her act together she will not see her daughter. 3)Stop giving the media EVERY detail about his and Amber’s life. MTV is the new Frankenstein. Just look at the MONSTERS they have created by giving these trailer trash nobodies an outlet and MONEY glorifying there pathetic lives!
