This Baffling Disappearance In Wyoming Still Remains Unsolved 20 Years Later

Few things are as frustrating or baffling as an unsolved mystery, and 2017 marks the 20th year that one of the most strange unexplained mysteries in Wyoming has gone unsolved.

In the summer of 1997, a 24-year-old Lander woman disappeared without a trace. Although police and even the FBI have investigated suspects and theories, none of the leads have panned out. Two decades later, family, friends, and the authorities still want to know what happened to Amy Wroe Bechtel.
