Amy's car broke down outside the village and stoped to offer his help. Amy pretended to be pregnant but Andy is aware she is lying and takes her to the local garage. While her car is being serviced, Amy checks into the B&B where she meets Val and Eric and claims to be a trainee nurse to get a discount; however she reveals to Victoria that she is actually sixteen and has run away from foster care. Victoria attempts to sneak Amy out without paying but Val catches her so she offers to pay her debt by working in the B&B. The police arrive and inform Val that Amy has stolen her foster parents' car and Amy is taken away by a social worker.
Victoria stays in touch with Amy and when she runs away again, Victoria hides her in the basement of the B&B. Val finds her and initially lets her stay, but Eric forced her to leave. Amy visits Val again and informs her that her foster parents have separated and she is moving back to a care home.

In December 2010, Eric started recieving Christmas cards signed by "Elizabeth", his deceased wife, who died on the night of the plane crash 17 years earlier in 1993. Eric accused Amy of sending the cards but Amy has no clue who Elizabeth was until Eric tells her about him. The real culprit was Elizabeth's son Michael Feldmann who had come back to get revenge on Eric still thinking he had killed her. Amy warned Michael off but he told her that if Eric wanted him out of his life for good it would cost him. Val later obtained the coroners report which confirmed Elizabeth had died due to debris from the plane crash so Michael left that night.
