Jeramy Carl Burt


Jeramy Carl Burt

Jeramy Burt, who grew up in American Falls, went missing five years ago on February 11, 2007. He left behind a daughter, a business, and a lot of speculation about what really happened.

After being reported missing, Burt's disappearance remains suspicious to his family. They say it was completely out of character for this 35-year-old to just up and leave. They find it especially difficult to understand, because according to them he would never abandon his little girl.

Four months after he went missing, the case took a strange turn that some suggest proves foul play. The remains of the car that Burt was apparently driving were discovered 45 miles north of the Nevada border. The car was found by a cowboy in a very remote area.

The abandoned car had been burned out. Investigators believe someone was trying to hide something, though they are not convinced it was foul play.

Details of Disappearance

Burt was last seen in the 2200 block of Hervey Street in Boise, Idaho at 10:30 p.m. on February 11, 2007. Shortly after his disappearance, his ex-wife got a text message from Burt's cellular phone, stating he planned to disappear and was moving to a new address and getting a new life. He has never been heard from again.
Burt's family believe he may have come to harm, as it would be uncharacteristic of him to abandon his young daughter. In May 2007, the Mercury Cougar Burt had been driving at the time of his disappearance was found abandoned and burned in an extremely remote desert area 45 miles north of the Nevada state line. The vehicle belonged to Burt's ex-wife. Authorities searched the car, but found no evidence as to Burt's whereabouts.

Burt's case is being investigated as a missing person rather than a crime, but his family fears for his safety. His case remains unsolved.
