Northern Idaho Women Still Missing 25 Years Later
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Police in Coeur d'Alene are still puzzling over the cases of two women who disappeared 25 years ago, and officials say the investigations will remain open until the cases are solved.
The Coeur d'Alene reports that teacher Deborah Jean Swanson vanished on March 29, 1986 after she walked onto Tubbs Hill. Her purse and identification were left in her locked car, and an extensive search uncovered no evidence. She was 31.
Then on May 16, Coeur d'Alene resident and exotic dancer Sally Anne Stone disappeared. She was last seen at her physical therapy appointment, but didn't show up the next day for a scheduled visit. The 21-year-old's vehicle was found undisturbed at her home.
Police Sgt. Christie Wood says anyone with information may call the Crime Stoppers hotline: (208) 667-2111.
