PRESS RELEAE FROM CRIME STOPPERS: Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering a cash reward for information leading to the resolution of two cold cases. These cases were profiled by Secret Witness in Spokane in May twenty-seven years ago. In March of 2006 Secret Witness of Kootenai County (Currently Crimes Stoppers of the Inland Northwest) offered a standing reward for these two unsolved missing person cases.

On March 29th 1986 Deborah Jean Swanson was reported missing after she had parked her vehicle in the Third Street parking lot and went onto Tubbs Hill to jog. She was last seen at 4:40pm walking onto the hill. Her vehicle was found in the lot by detectives. It was undisturbed and locked with her purse, wallet and identification in it. An extensive search of the recreational area revealed no evidence as to the reason for her disappearance.

Deborah was employed at the time as a school teacher with the Coeur d'Alene School District. Her disappearance remains unsolved and it is believed by police that she was a victim of foul play. She was 31 years of age at the time of her disappearance and she would be 56 years of age now. She is described as a white female, 5'4, 130 lbs, blonde hair, and blue eyes. See the attached photo of Deborah Swanson.

On May 16th 1986 Sally Anne Stone aka Sally Anne Ries was reported missing. She was last seen in Coeur d'Alene at the office of her physical therapist on May 16th. She failed to go to her scheduled appointment with her therapist on May 17th.

Her vehicle was found at her residence undisturbed. She was off work due to an injury at the time from her job as an exotic dancer at the Kontiki Bar at the Stateline. Her disappearance remains unsolved and it is believed by police that she is a victim of foul play. She was 21 years of age at the time of her disappearance and she would be 46 years of age now.

She is described as 5'2, 115-130 lbs, brown hair, hazel eyes, she has a tattoo on her right shoulder of a parrot standing on a branch in front of a half moon. There is a ribbon under it with the letters ‘Teko's" on it. She has a scar approximately 5 to 6 inches long on her abdomen that is possibly from a cesarean operation. See the attached photo of Sally Stone.
