    Details of Disappearance

    Bier resided with her family in Fresno, California in 1987. She was last seen during a camping trip with Russell Welch on June 1, 1987 in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Bier and Welch, whose nickname is Skip, camped in the area of Shuteye Peak, approximately 25 miles northeast of Bass Lake. He was 43 years old at the time. They were reportedly searching for the legendary creature known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot. Welch considered himself a "student" of the legend. Bier disappeared during the trip and has never been heard from again.

    Authorities questioned Welch when he returned to Fresno several days later. He initially claimed that Bier ran away from him on June 1, then he changed his story. Welch eventually stated that Bier had been forcibly taken by Bigfoot. Welch was charged with her abduction, but the case against him was dismissed due to a lack of evidence in October 1987, more than four months after Bier disappeared. Searches of the Shuteye Peak area produced no clues as to her whereabouts. Foul play is suspected in Bier's case.
