Details of Disappearance

Dehoop was last seen at approximately 7:00 a.m. on April 22, 2005 when she dropped her husband off at work at the Home Depot in the vicinity of the 1000 block of Green Acres Road in Eugene, Oregon.

She was scheduled to drive to Halsey, Oregon for her own job at the Georgia-Pacific but never arrived. She has never been heard from again. Her boss and boyfriend reported her missing.

Six days after Dehoop's disappearance, someone found her purse and dropped it off at a Bi-mart in Eugene. He said he had found it while walking his dog. The wallet was missing.

On May 2, ten days after Dehoop's disappearance, the same person who found her purse led authorities to her white two-door 1990 Toyota Corolla SR5 with the Oregon license plate number YCH635. It was on Lorane Highway just east of Fillmore Street in south Eugene.

There was no sign of Dehoop at the scene. Her case remains unsolved.
