MISSING (04/22/2005) — Wendy Marie Dehoop Vanished After Taking Her Husband to Work

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.”

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. He said he found the purse while he was out walking the dog. Police determined that Wendy’s wallet was missing.

In early May, 10 days since anyone has 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.

Wendy is black, Cherokee, and Hispanic. At the time of her disappearance, Wendy was 5’6″ 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.”

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.

MISSING — Camisha Hollis, Mother of 3, Missing After Being Beaten By Boyfriend

One thing that many of these missing cases proves is that the ones we love don’t always have our best interests in mind. Too often women enter into relationships believing that their partners will stand by them, love them, and protect them, not knowing the person that they’ve opened their hearts to are the very predators they need protection from.

Omaha, Nebraska police were alerted in April 2018 after Martha Hollis found her three grandchildren — 10, eight, and six-years-old — home alone. Martha was visiting her daughter, 34-year-old Camisha Hollis, and her daughter’s live-in boyfriend of 18 years, 36-year-old Marvin Young. It was a place that Martha claimed to have avoided because of the negative energy she felt there. When Martha arrived at the home and saw that the three young girls were without supervision, she asked them where their parents were. She wasn’t prepared for the answer.

The eldest daughter told Martha that on April 1, her father gave them a cough syrup-like drink before bed. The purple liquid helped her sisters fall fast asleep, but she, instead, spit hers out. She said as she lay in bed, she heard a vicious fight between her parents. She claimed that she witnessed her father beat her mother, including savagely attacking Camisha with a boot. The couple has had a long history of domestic violence, but the little girl said this is the worst she’s ever witnessed.

“She said she was paralyzed with fear because it was very loud and scarier than any time prior,” Omaha Police Detective Sarah Spizzirri said.

Who knows how many times these poor children have seen the man they are supposed to look up to strike their mother. The girl also knew that her father kept a gun in his bedroom closet, a revelation that surprised Martha.

Although the child did see her coward of a father repeatedly striking her mother, what happened to Camisha next remains a mystery. The two disappeared from the house and the girls were left to fend for themselves. The kids woke up around 8:00 a.m. the following day. Martha arrived sometime that morning and called the police who, following a quick search of the home, found blood and two spent shell casings. They also recovered a bottle of Sleep Time, a sleeping aid that is presumed to be what Young fed his children. The instructions clearly state that the medicine shouldn’t be given to anyone under the age of 12.

“There’s no way she would’ve left her three kids alone,” Martha told 6 News. “In my head, I’m thinking he played a major role in Camisha’s disappearance.”

Martha also stated that Camisha “was tired of the abuse and she was gonna leave. She wanted to live her life, just her and her kids.”

Camisha was classified as an Endangered Missing Person and days following her disappearance, her car was found at an undisclosed location. While investigators wouldn’t tell the public where the 2018 Red Hyundai Elantra was found, they did immediately search nearby riverbanks and wildlife areas.

“I’m still hoping for the best, like I said, prepared for the worst; just hoping we find her,” said Martha.

Months later, police have yet to locate Camisha. They believe that Young is responsible for her disappearance, but they don’t have any concrete evidence to tie him to any crime. However, he was arrested on three counts of child abuse, one count of domestic disturbing the peace and one count of criminal mischief. When Young was interviewed about Camisha, police said his calm demeanor soon shifted and he began banging on tables and walls before threatening officers.


During the initial stages of the search for Camisha, Martha said she didn’t tell her granddaughters that their mother was missing.

“They think that she’s on vacation. They think she’s coming home one day,” Martha said. “Some nights, they’ll have nightmares asking for their mom. They miss their mom so much.”

“A blessing is going to come through,” she said. “She didn’t deserve this, whatever happened. I just hope and pray that we’ll find her to give her peace if she is deceased.”

Camisha’s daughters are being cared for by her mother. The search for the missing woman continues. Young is still claiming no involvement in her disappearance. The investigation is active and ongoing.

She is described as having brownish-reddish hair at the time she went missing. She has brown eyes and stands 5’6″ and 195 pounds.
