Circumstances of Disappearance
Hoyt was last seen in Highland Beach, Florida sometime during December 2005. She called her brother in Portland, Oregon to tell him she was mailing him a Christmas present. She asked him to call her when it arrived. When Hoyt’s brother tried to call her, he got a message back from her boyfriend, who said he’d ordered her out of his house and taken her phone, which he was paying for. He said he thought Hoyt had gone to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Hoyt’s family contacted the police in Florida after waiting a few weeks without hearing from her. The police refused to take a missing persons report at the time, saying there was no evidence Hoyt was in danger. Years passed before they agreed to list Hoyt as missing.
Hoyt is described as a very sensitive, artistic individual. Her father died when she was four, and her family moved at least nineteen times during her childhood. Her relationship with her boyfriend, who was about twenty years older than her, was troubled and she’d told her family she planned to leave him. Little evidence is available as to her fate. Some accounts give January 1, 2006 as the date Hoyt went missing.
