The Disappearance of Emily Hieber

Emily Hieber was last seen by her family members on February 3rd, 2013. That day, 19 year-old Emily brought her Miniature Pinscher named Bruiser over to her grandparents house in Yuma, Arizona. Emily and her dog visited with her grandparents for a while that afternoon, and according to Emily’s grandmother, nothing seemed amiss with the young girl. In fact, it appeared that Emily was trying to put her life back together after being hooked on drugs for the past few years. Unfortunately, Emily’s grandparents never heard from her again after she left that afternoon, and she was reported missing months later on August 16th, 2013, after it was revealed that her friends and family members had not seen her since February as well.

Emily reportedly began abusing drugs during the summer of 2012, before her senior year of high school. She moved out of her mother’s home after she turned 18 and her drug problems appeared to worsen after that. Emily’s social circle was filled with people who had been in and out of jail for various violence and drug charges. Emily’s last Facebook post was a status update that read: “So yesterday I found out that my soon to be ex fiance Carlos is getting out of jail in 2 weeks.. the day before our 1 year anniversary.” In the comments, Emily stated that she was going to break up with him as soon as he was released. Her Facebook page has not been updated since then.

Over the years, there have been many rumors about what might have happened to Emily. Her dog vanished with her, so many believed that she simply ran away to live off-the-grid. A private investigator hired by Emily’s family stated that he has received tips that Emily was taken against her will to Mexico. He has also received tips stating that Emily was spotted in various other places throughout the United States. None of these sightings have been confirmed, and Emily remains missing today.

There is currently a $15000 reward in place for any information that could lead to Emily’s whereabouts. If you have any information that could help, please contact the Yuma Police Department at 928-373-4686.
