After five years of searching, a hiker eventually found the bones of Paige Birgfeld, a mother of three who has been missing since 2007. It was known that the 34-year-old not only sold kitchen products but also ran an escort service.
The skeletal remains discovered in the Wells Gulch area have been identified using dental records. Investigators assume she was killed and named Lester Ralph Jones, now 61, as a suspect in the case.
Her father, Frank Birgfeld, was immediately informed when the bones were found and told reporters that he thinks about his daughter "many times every day" and "won´t feel uplifted ff it turns out that the police report comes back that this is she".
