After nearly 20 years, the search presses on for two White County teens who seemingly vanished into thin air.
Eighteen-year-old Erin Foster and 17-year-old Jeremy Bechtel were last seen on the night of April 3, 2000.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the teens were spotted around 10 p.m. as witnesses reported seeing them in Erin’s black Pontiac Grand-Am.
There have been several reported sightings of Erin and the car, but so far, no leads have panned out.
Roughly six years after the pair’s disappearance, investigators searched for Erin in Pensacola, Florida, after receiving tips she was living and working there.
Meanwhile back in Tennessee, police followed leads suggesting the pair had been murdered and their bodies dumped in an abandoned well somewhere in White County
Now, 18 years later, no specific tip has led to Erin or Jeremy.
Since the disappearances, authorities said there has been no activity on either of their social security numbers. Erin also reportedly never renewed her driver’s license.
Erin has blonde hair, blue eyes and pierced ears. Jeremy has dark hair and light eyes. If you have any information, call the White County Sheriff’s Office at 931-836-2700 or the the Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
