Deborah Jean Swanson

Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering a cash reward for information leading to the resolution of two cold cases that were opened 26 years ago. These cases were profiled by Secret Witness in Spokane in 1986.

On March 29, 1986 Deborah Jean Swanson, a 31-year-old Coeur d'Alene School District teacher, was reported missing after she parked her vehicle in the Third Street parking lot and went onto Tubbs Hill to jog.

She was last seen at 4:40 p.m. walking onto the hill. Her vehicle was found in the lot by detectives. It was undisturbed and locked with her purse, wallet and identification in it. An extensive search of the recreational area revealed no evidence indicating the reason for her disappearance.

Deborah, described as a white female, 5 feet 4 inches tall, 130 pounds, blond hair, and blue eyes. She would be 56 now.

Her disappearance remains unsolved and it is believed by police that she was a victim of foul play.

On May 16, 1986 Sally Anne Stone aka Sally Anne Ries was reported missing. The 21-year-old was last seen in Coeur d’Alene at the office of her physical therapist on May 16. She failed to go to her scheduled appointment with her therapist on May 17.

Her vehicle was found at her residence undisturbed. She was not working at the time, due to an injury she received working as an exotic dancer at Kontiki Bar at Stateline. Stone is described as 5 feet 2 inches tall, 115-130 pounds, brown hair, hazel eyes, with a tattoo on her right shoulder of a parrot standing on a branch in front of a half moon. There is a ribbon under it with the letters ‘Teko’s” on it. She also has a scar approximately 5-6 inches long on her abdomen that is possibly from a cesarean-section.

Stone's disappearance remains unsolved and it is believed by police that she is a victim of foul play. 

The Coeur d’Alene Police Department has kept the two cases open, and continues to seek new leads in the whereabouts of these two women.

Anyone who has information on either of these cases is asked to call Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest at (208) 667-2111. Callers are asked to use a code name or number and do not have to give their own name to be eligible for a cash reward.
