Erin Foster went missing 21 years ago on April 3, 2000 in Sparta, Tn when she was only 18 years old along with a close friend, Jeremy Bechtel who was 17.
For 21 years friends and family have searched for answers, following numerous tips, rumors any information that might lead to their whereabouts. Many searches took place with the help of cadaver dogs, mediums, rescue squad, rope teams and non profit organizations outside of county sheriffs and investigators who also donated their time and attention.
After no leads or evidence being discovered for 21 years, and the case going cold, a man by the name of Jeremy Beau Sides of "Exploring With Nug" reached out to their Facebook page "Justice for Jeremy Bechtal and Erin Foster" in October offering his services, free of charge, to try and help find them. Using his own equipment and time, he was able to dive and locate Erin's car in the Calfkiller River right beside the road on Hwy 84 in White County on 12-1-21. The day we thought may never come, DID and stunned us all leaving our heads spinning and our hearts happy yet heavy. "Finally their going home." We cannot thank Jeremy enough for finally helping to bring us some closure. We would also like to thank the Sparta Rescue Squad and dive team, WCSD, any and all who helped.
We would like to raise funds to help with the services to lay Erin to rest properly. We will honor her family's wishes in the arrangements.
Please also consider donating to Jeremy Beau Sides "Exploring With Nug" and White County Rescue Squad who all volunteer their time to help in situations such as this.
