Almost 25 years after her disappearance, Bonneville Power Administration and local law enforcement officials continue to search for clues in an effort to discover what happened to Julie Weflen.

In an attempt to generate leads in the case, BPA is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in Weflen’s disappearance.

“We take very seriously our efforts to create an atmosphere of safety and security at BPA,” said Christy Munro, BPA chief security and continuity officer. “We are very concerned that one of our own disappeared from a work site, and to this day, we are working with law enforcement officials solve this case.”

Weflen vanished Sept. 16, 1987, while working at a BPA substation near Spokane, Wash. Since then, BPA and local law enforcement officials have received countless tips, but none have led to solving Weflen’s case.

Through its Crime Witness Program, BPA offers up to $25,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of individuals committing crimes against BPA facilities, infrastructure and personnel. Anyone having information is asked to call BPA’s confidential and toll-free Crime Witness Hotline at 800-437-2744. Tips can also be provided to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Department Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

BPA is a nonprofit federal agency that markets renewable hydropower from federal Columbia River dams, operates three-quarters of high-voltage transmission lines in the Northwest and funds one of the largest wildlife protection and restoration programs in the world. BPA and its partners have also saved enough electricity through energy efficiency projects to power four large American cities.
