Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Amy was last seen about 14.30 at a photo shop in Lander, Fremont County, Wyoming on July 24, 1997. This was the last confirmed sighting of Amy.
It's believed she left the photo shop and drove into the Shoshone National Forest, southwest of Lander, on the Loop Road between Sinks Canyon and South Pass, to check the course of a 10K race her gym was planning.
When her husband  returned home at 16.30 from rock climbing with a friend, Amy was not there. By nightfall, he alerted neighbors and the sheriff's department. Amy's white Toyota station wagon was found on the Loop Road near a small road where she had started her run. Her keys were in the car but her green Eagle Creek wallet was missing.
