  • Details of Disappearance
    Amber Hoopes was last seen by family members in their residence in Idaho Falls, Idaho, at approximately 10:30 p.m. on September 14, 2001. At approximately 1:00 a.m., a family member found the television and lights were on in Amber's bedroom, but she was no longer inside. Her personal belongings were still in the room.

    Keith Glenn Hescock has been investigated for possible involvement in Hoopes's case, and also the 1993 disappearance of Stephanie Lyn Crane. Hescock kidnapped a fourteen-year-old girl in June 2002. She escaped from him and he later committed suicide. Hescock had worked for the Hoopes family, and his neighbor says he was in Challis, Idaho the weekend Crane disappeared from that location. He also owned a yellow pickup truck similar to the one that may be connected to Crane's case. Authorities have not been able to link him to either disappearance, however.
