Details of Disappearance

Auten-Metz was last seen in St. James, Missouri on April 8, 2015. She lived with her boyfriend, Jessie Lee Bockover, in the 21000 block of County Road 3644 in St. James, Missouri. Auten-Metz's family reported her missing on May 30. Police interviewed Brockover twice and named him as a person of interest in her case, as his statements were inconsistent. They attempted to interview him a third time, but were unable to locate him. On July 14, Bockover was found dead near his home; he'd shot himself to death.

Foul play is suspected in Auten-Metz's case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
