RUPERT, Idaho -- The addition of a retired criminal analyst has prompted the Rupert Police Department to reopen a case involving a southern Idaho woman missing for more than two decades.

Lead investigator Sgt. Jeff McEwen says the case was reopened after Diane Gines joined the department's reserves last year. Gines is donating her services.

McEwen says Gines is taking a fresh look at the case and trying to establish a victim profile of 29-year-old Norine Boyd of Rupert, who went missing on Dec. 20, 1988.

Hikers found her vehicle three months later at the base of the Twin Sisters formation in the City of Rocks. Her crushed sunglasses were on the ground next to her belt.

McEwen says the department would like to hear from anyone who knew her or the family.
