    ID - Amber Hoopes, 20, Idaho Falls, 14 Sept 2001

    Amber was abducted 3 days after WTC, her family got NO media attention, from my understanding. Please help them get the answers they so desperately seek, and God bless you!

    BUMPing this thread...this happened in my hometown, very close to where my parents live.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.

    According to what I've heard about this, someone showed up at the house, which is not very close to any other houses, and she went outside to investigate. One likely suspect is a man who kidnapped another little girl on the same night Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped, but this girl got away and the perp killed himself when the police caught up with him. (I can't remember the perp's name tho)

    Amber Hoopes was ready for bed. She left behind her wallet and paycheck and was gone without any personal effects. Her grandpa's new truck was taken as well, and abandoned with 60 extra miles on it. Amber had a good reputation and wasn't the kind of girl to run off or make her family worry. There was a computer in the home, if I remember right. Her Grandpa had also fired a farm worker shortly before night, also.

    Please view Ambers photos... you may be the one who is able to bring her home.

    My girls went to Church with Amber, years ago and our hearts go out to her and her family. Our country is filled with missing people... we all must do what ever we can, to bring them home and end the suffering of their families.
    And don't forget that the power of prayer is real.

    I advocate stronger laws for those who abduct children or adults. We must stop the evil that is infecting America.

    The perps name in the other case

    Keth Glenn Hescok or Hesscock (not sure of spelling) He had mentioned to this amazing girl that escaped from him that he had got another girl before if I remember correctly. He kidnapped a teen that was sleeping outside on her trampoline the same night as the Elizabeth Smart abduction, but about 200 miles away.

    Exclamation Amber Hoopes Found Dead

    Missing since 4 days after the horror of Sept. 11th. Amber had not been seen and none of her posessions were taken.
    She was missing from her home.

    A young girl told of being kidnapped and taken to a remote cabin where another girl was being held captive. She told of the girl telling her to escape and run get help. She managed to get out, but the other girl couldn't flee due to her restraints. Wandering the rugged mountains of Idaho, the girl eventually found help, but couldn't tell police where the cabin was. The girl was able to describe the man and as he was tracked into the canyon, and cornered by police...he committed suicide.

    This summer a family returned to their mountain cabin, after a 4 year span of not going there. There they found the remains of Amber.

    Amber died a hero as she saved the child, and I believe she is now in a better place. Her family now has the knowledge that she is with God and is at peace.

    There can never be closure for anyone who looses a loved one to a violent crime! There is only knowledge...and hopefully some peace.

    Thank you FlowerGirl. I am so Glad Amber's family may have some peace now, but sorry it turned out this way, but I had a feeling things did not go well for Amber. Amber is from my hometown where this happened, my family knows some of her family members. Could you give me any more information, or a link to the story? Was the man who did this Keith Hesscock? TIA

    There is a thread in the "Located" Forum that Amber has been found dead.
