In the early morning hours of April 22, 2005, Wendy Marie Dehoop dropped her husband, Dan, off at work at Home Depot. Afterward, the Eugene, Oregon resident was set to make her way to the Georgia-Pacific, her place of employment, but Wendy never showed up.
Two people reported Wendy missing: her boss and her friend, David Tishim. Some reports have described David as Wendy’s “boyfriend,” but that isn’t confirmed.
Six days after Wendy was last seen, a man walked into a Bi-mart in Eugene and handed over a purse that was later identified as belonging to Wendy Marie Dehoop. He said he found the purse while he was out walking his dog. Investigators later determined that Wendy’s wallet was missing but details about whether or not evidence was discovered is unclear.
In early May, 10 days since anyone had heard from Wendy, her vehicle, a while 1990 Toyota Corolla SR5, was located on Lorane Highway in south Eugene. There were no clues that gave investigators any indication as to where she could be. There is nothing that shows she was planning on leaving of her own accord, however, there were no signs found that pointed to foul play, either.
At the time of her disappearance, Wendy Marie Dehoop was 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed 145 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes, and was last seen wearing black pinstripe pants and a suit coat. She has also gone by the name Wendy Williams-Hook and by the nickname “Nada.” Wendy is described as being Black, Cherokee, and Hispanic.
Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Wendy Marie Dehoop is urged to contact the Lane County Sheriff’s Office at (541) 682-4311. She is our sister and her life matters.
