Details of Disappearance

Stephanie traveled from her family's residence in Kingman, Arizona to Bullhead City, Arizona with a female friend on March 13, 1995. The two women became separated at a park in Bullhead City and Stephanie disappeared. She was last seen at approximately 2:00 a.m. and has never been heard from again.

Stephanie's family members said that she failed to retrieve her paycheck before her disappearance. She was also looking forward to her boyfriend's release from prison, which occurred six months after she went missing. It's possible drugs were involved in her case; both Stephanie and the friend who accompanied her that night were drug users.

Two men claimed they were involved in Stephanie's case, but authorities determined that one of the individuals was imprisoned in March 1995 and the lead was cast aside. There have not been any arrests in connection with her disappearance, which remains unsolved.
