    WA - Julie Weflen, 28, Spokane, 16 Sept 1987

    Does anyone have any information or updates on this missing woman? Julie Weflen disappeared from a job site (Power company I believe) in Spokane, WA in 1987. She was 28 at the time. I cannot seem to find anything on this case but I've always remembered it. Any help would be appreciated.

    One of Anne Rule's books featured Julie Weflen's case. I am not sure which book it was though. Sad story. I wish there was an update or at least more information on her case somewhere. I did a search and can't find any information on her except for what is on Ann Rule's website.

    Same here. Then you have to go through all the guesbook entries and that gets to be too much. Maybe I'll have to go to the bookstore and just look at her books and see which one mentions Julie. My husband also has some contacts at the Spokane PD so maybe I can talk him into inquiring them. If I ever find anything out I'll post the information.

    I've read all of Ann Rule's books but can never remember which person goes with which book. Now I'll have to re-read that book

    I was just perusing Ann Rule's website and this is what she had to say about Julie:

    "Most who read this book ask me if Julie Weflen or her remains have ever been found. I wish that I could say "yes," but the mystery of her tragic vanishing continues."

    I wish Julie was at least listed on some missing person websites.

    I live in the neighborhood and have been to the in named poi .look up "adventure dynamics" . its on pine bluff. Its pretty remote and it creeper me out to no end because although there are many welcoming signs directing you to the business/property once you get down to the entrance its like fort Knox so
    With cameras everywhere and huge signs that say no trespassing,private property,do not enter etc with huge steel cattle gate ...any thoughts?
    Always~

    I was an employee of Bonneville Power Administration in Vancouver, Washington, and met Julie when she spent about a week training at our facility. I think that was a year or two before she disappeared. She was a wonderful, intelligent girl. She was a substation operator at a large federal substation near Spokane and did periodic maintenance work at small isolated substations in that region. My guess is that some freak was driving by when Julie pulled into the substation and decided to grab her. There were signs of a struggle. I believe poor Julie is buried somewhere in the vast desert of that area and the perpetrator will never be caught. Too much time has passed. Bonneville made some changes as a result of Julie's disappearance; operators do not go solo to these isolated stations, especially females. God Bless Julie.

    I have never heard of the case until a month ago, from an Anne Rule book.

    I did email Anne Rule, as she asks if anyone has any information to email her or LE.

    It being at a substation, I wonder if they had a problem with copper theft in the area. If they did, I would look at arrests within a month +/- related to copper theft to see if 2 people were arrested together close to that area. They may have decided she was more beneficial to them than the copper.
    Of course, it could have just been some random duo who happened to be around an isolated substation. IMO, that would be a little too random.
    Everyone makes mistakes...if we didn't, erasers would never have been invented.

    Nothing new here but I found a couple of articles from 1987 when Julie went missing. Very sad...

    Another search turns up little - and no Julie Weflen

    Determined husband keeps searching

    Here's a new article posted yesterday about Julie's disappearance.
    It also contains a video report on her friend's continued search.

    http://www.nwcn.com/home/?fId=121870...&fDomain=10222
    SPOKANE -- A 23-year-old cold case may have a second chance of getting solved. Electrical worker Julie Weflen went missing Northwest of Spokane in 1987. Now her friend is looking to close her case and end the uncertainty behind her disappearance

    No arrests were made. But that could change more than two decades after the suspected crime was committed. The last known place anybody knew the whereabouts of Julie Weflen was at a power sub-station in Northwest Spokane. That is where she was working before she disappeared.

    .....
    Reading one of the article's posted earlier in the thread, Julie's husband has since remarried. I just hope for him and her friends that they could find closure after all this time.

    God,I remember when this happened I was living in Western Montana at the time but the only three TV stations we got were all from Spokane.
    Ive never felt that her abductor happend upon her by accident I think it was someone who knew she would be at places like that alone.
    Probably someone who had an unhealthy obsession.
    Just a feeling though .
    Ive always felt that Spokane has always had a disproportunate amount of malevolent weirdness like this going on considering its size.
    Reminds me of Stephen King's 'Derry Maine'.
