Deanne Marie Hastings was born on February 27th, 1980, in Pahrump, Nevada. Deanne and her family moved to Spokane, Washington when she was in the fourth grade.
She has three children and lived with her boyfriend, Mike Tibbetts, at the time of her disappearance.
Deanne Hastings has a history of manic episodes and may have been having one on the night of her disappearance. She was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and had been having problems with her medications shortly before her disappearance.
On November 3rd, 2015, Deanne Hastings attended orientation at the Glen Dow Academy cosmetology school.
She had returned home and left a note for her boyfriend, Mike Tibbetts, telling him that she had a good day and was off to the grocery store.
Deanne never returned home and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. She left all her belongings behind, including her identification and money.
After Deanne Hastings didn’t return home, her boyfriend, Mike Tibbetts, tracked her phone through GPS. He found her vehicle, inside were her purse and cell phone, abandoned in a parking lot near the Knitting Factory.
The following day, her credit card was used at the Trading Company on Inland Empire Way. Surveillance video shows Deanne inside the store purchasing vodka and birthday candles.
Several witnesses said Deanne had asked for help before entering the store, claiming that she had been drugged & kidnapped. The police were called, and when the officer arrived around 12:30 pm an ambulance was already on the scene.
Authorities spoke to Deanne for a while and decided to let her go. She went inside the store, made her purchase, and was seen walking out of the parking lot towards a coffee shop. At that point, the officer had left the scene.
Later that afternoon Deanne was seen on surveillance walking with a man named Randy Riley and his friend by a nearby storage facility.
When the individuals were questioned by police, they claimed that they had met Deanne that day and had hung out with her for a couple of hours. They say that the last time they saw her was when they left her on the side of the road, about 300 yards from her home.
A man later told authorities that he had given Deanne a ride to the Trading Company on the day she disappeared. He says she left her keys in his car, but that he didn’t know anything else about her disappearance.
On November 12th, 2015 Randy Riley, one of the men last seen with Deanne Hastings on the afternoon she disappeared, was caught on video using her card at a gas station in Spokane Valley. The next day he was seen again, along with two others, using her EBT card at WinCo.
When questioned, Randy Riley admits that he used Deanne’s cards without her consent. He claims that he saw Deanne walking on South Inland Empire Way on the afternoon of November 4th, 2015. He claims Deanne was belligerent, and that he ended up leaving her on the side of the road.
He also told authorities he drove a day later, back by that area, and stumbled across Deanne’s coat with her wallet inside. He claims that he threw her cards and ID out near the deli to make it look as if she was still walking around.
Randy Riley was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property and identity theft and spent several months in jail before being released in September of 2016.
Her driver’s license was found weeks later outside Sonnenberg’s Deli on Sprague Avenue.
