At 9:30 a.m. on July 24, 1997, 24-year-old Amy Wroe Bechtel left her Lander, Wyoming apartment to run errands.

Her husband, 27-year-old Steve Bechtel, went rock climbing with a friend. At 2:30 that afternoon, Amy was seen at a photo shop. This was the last confirmed sighting of Amy.

It's believed she left the photo shop and drove into the Shoshone National Forest to check the course of a 10K race her gym was planning.

When Steve returned home at 4:30 p.m., Amy was not there. By nightfall he alerted neighbors and the sheriff's department. Amy's white Toyota station wagon was found parked off a dirt road in the Shoshone Forest, her keys were in the car but she and her wallet were missing.

In 2004, Amy's husband, Steve, had her declared legally dead.

Amy's body has never been found.
