    Boise December 17th, 2010 -Investigation Discovery will feature a Boise missing persons case on Monday December 20th at 10:00 p.m. that began in February of 2007. 

    The Jeramy Burt Case:Boise Police received a missing persons report from family members on February 17th of 2007. Family members told police the man was last seen leaving his Boise bench home on Sunday February 11th at approximately 10:30 p.m. Family members say it was unusual for him to just take off and there has been no contact with the missing man since his disappearance. At the time, Jeramy Burt left behind a child who has been in the custody of family ever since. Boise Police Detectives, working with other local agencies, conducted interviews and an extensive investigation in an attempt to locate Jeramy Burt in the weeks, months and years after he disappeared. None of the many leads detectives followed led to Jeramy Burt. Detectives believe foul play may be involved. Jeramy Burt was 35 years of age when he disappeared. If you have any information, about the Jeremy Burt case, no matter how insignificant it may seem, we urge you to contact Boise Police Detectives or call crime stoppers at 343-COPS.
