CHALLIS, Idaho -- It's been exactly 20 years since Stephanie Crane disappeared, but her hometown of Challis has not forgotten.
Crane was nine years old, and walking toward Challis High School, when she disappeared on October 11, 1993. The Custer County Sheriff's Office says she was leaving the bowling alley and when she didn't come home, her mother reported her missing. An extensive search turned up nothing, and she has not been seen since.
The picture on the left shows what she looked like then, and the picture on the right is an age-enhanced photo, depicting what she might look like today.
Custer County officials say they have recently acted on a tip that lead them to search the Idaho back country, however that search was also unsuccessful.
On the 20-year anniversary the sheriff's office would like to remind the public that this is still an open and active case.
If you have any information, they want to hear from you. Their tip line number is (208) 879-5723.
