Amy Bechtel’s mysterious disappearance explained

As reported by the True Crime Times Blog, the store’s owner, Greg Wagner, said Amy Bechtel (above) walked in around 2:30 p.m. the day she went missing. Wagner said Bechtel had looked at her watch several times and seemed to be in a hurry to leave.

The Charley Project reports that authorities believe Bechtel left the store and headed to the Shoshone National Forest in the Wind River Mountains, where they planned to review the route for an upcoming 10k run. As reported by the True Crime Times Blog, Bechtel’s white Toyota station wagon was found parked on Loop Road where she could have easily accessed the route she had planned. Authorities confirmed that Bechtel’s sunglasses, keys and her to-do list were all left in the vehicle. However, her wallet was missing. Authorities also confirmed that there appeared to be no signs of a fight.

According to The Charley Project, no one saw Bechtel walking along the route. However, a footprint similar to the size and brand of their shoes was found along the way. Unfortunately, the print was compromised before authorities could confirm it was a positive match.

As is often the case when someone goes missing, authorities have held Amy Bechtel’s husband a first person of interest. At the time of Amy’s disappearance, the couple had been married for a little over a year and had recently bought a home. However, the True Crime Times blog reports that their relationship was far from perfect.
