Details of Disappearance

Dehner was last seen in Priest Lake, Idaho on July 16, 1992. He and his wife lived in Spokane, Washington but had a cabin in a remote area north of Priest Lake. They were out huckleberry picking between Caribou Hill and Trapper Creek when Dehner disappeared. He was carrying his truck keys at the time of his disappearance. He has never been heard from again.

Searchers later found various items, including a sock and underwear, as well as some unidentified "tissue and fluids." Dehner has never been located, however, and none of the items they found could be definitively linked to him. His case remains unsolved.
