  • Details of Disappearance
    Deborah Dee Sykes was last in Rathdrum, Idaho on February 13, 2005. The night before she vanished, Sykes was out drinking at One Eye’s and had been picked up from a friend’s house in the middle of the night by her husband. The next morning, when she was still in bed, her husband left to go to the grocery store, and when he returned, she was gone.

    She didn't take anything with her and was distraught at the time of her disappearance.

    Sykes didn’t have much of a criminal record, but she’d written some bad checks around the time she disappeared, and there was a warrant out for her arrest. And she socialized with people who had frequent run-ins with the law. She was reported missing on March 1, 2005.
