    WY - Renee Diane Yeargain, 24, Torrington, 10 Aug 2004

    I need some help again! Don't have any idea where to put this.

    Today marks the 7th anniversary of the disappearance of a close friend of mine. Little has been done to find her. It seems the county just let this one go because Renee wasn't a model citizen in the eyes of many.
    Renee became a mother at a very young age and life wasn't easy for her. I was introduced to her at work, the day she started. Although she was old than me, I took her under my wing and showed her the ropes. I later noticed that she was dating an old friend of mine from high school. They were close and had a child together.
    In December of 2003, I remember reading an article in the local newspaper saying that her home had burnt down. There was a lot of mystery in that fire. At some point I remember some talk about the boyfriend she was dating being involved in the fire.
    My family donated a ton of things to help her. It was right after Christmas and the fire had consumed most of the children's presents.
    We ran into each other from time to time on the street and had a chance to catch up. I began a reporter and I noticed her photo on the front page of the newspaper....she was missing.
    Below are some facts about the case...
    "Yeargain's boyfriend of three years, Josh Minter, stated she abandoned him and her four children on August 10, 2004. He stated that she took a grocery sack full of clothing with her and refused to say where she was going. After Yeargain vanished, Minter took her three oldest children to their former foster parents, who contacted the Wyoming Department of Family Services. He kept the youngest, an infant who was his biological child. Yeargain's other children are not related to Minter.

    Two days later, on August 12, Yeargain's white 1987 Subaru station wagon was found at a rest stop between Cheyenne and Torrington, Wyoming. Her keys, cellular phone, and her purse, which contained her wallet, checkbook and other items, were inside the vehicle. No money was found and Yeargain's tattoo kit and clothing were also missing. The car had been parked at the rest area since August 10. "
    Here are some sites where she is listed as missing:

    Thank you for posting justiceforjuliette. I am going to move this thread to the Missing But Not Forgotten forum. I will leave a redirect for a few days so that the thread is easier to find.

    Thank you for posting this, justiceforjuliette.

    I looked for a thread earlier, to bump this on the 7th anniversary of her disappearance, but could not find one. I just added your page (I'm "For The Missing: Pacific Northwest").

    May she be found soon.

    Are there any articles you can post relating to her dissapearance? So sad for her 4 children. I wonder have they ever been interviewed? Maybe they saw something or noticed something not quite right, about the time she went missing.

    Hoping her children and loved ones can have some anwers soon.

    Thank you for sharing this!!! When the first account was set up in facebook, I didn't know half the things I do now! So glad that I do! Here is where this whole thing gets odd.
    Minter's mother contacted a local psychic shortly after Renee disappeared. I know this psychic personally and I can say she has been dead on about a few other things. She claims that Renee is dead and was thrown in a river some where in TN. I have searched all the unclaimed bodies I can handle looking for her. We also had a woman contact the facebook account and tell us that she saw Renee's headstone in Torrington and her body had been found. I called the cemetery and they have no person by that name. The woman claimed that the body was found in the home she lived in after the first one burnt down. She claimed it had been stuffed in a wall...there have been so many weird things like this in this case.
    Minter and Renee were going to be married one week after she vanished....he is quoted in the newspaper say "She is a big girl and can take care of herself." That always haunted me and made me wonder what on earth!?! How can someone who you plan to marry leave and you not care?

    There are very few real articles...most of them have been added to places by friends.

    That is one...right now my computer is being weird...I will look for more after dinner, but that is a start. I know in one of those links that I posted on the first post there are a few more articles.

    To my knowledge the children claim that Renee and Minter were fighting. That is all I can recall. I will pass that question around and see what other friends can remember.

    Not sure if the folks who knew Renee are on this thread, but I saw mentioned in the missing notification that she had called some friends after her disappearance? Was that accurate information? I came across this while looking for possible leads on the UID person in Marion, OH whose name was similar to "Dana" and was selling magazines door to door. Since magazine crews take young folks all over the country, I was searching missing person reports for any D names. If someone who knew Renee sees this, please look at the new sketches that are posted on this thread here:

    Reading more about Renee's story, it seems unlikely she wouldn't have made contact with her family if she had been alive in another state.
