Details about Scotts disappearance have been slow to surface. Montanas Department of Justice confirmed Friday that it issued a missing or endangered person advisory on Dec. 26, the day the FBI requested one, which was nearly two weeks after Scott went missing. The Bureau of Indian Affairs had entered Scott into the missing persons database Dec. 13, meaning she was in the system, but her disappearance wasn't broadcast to the media until the day after Christmas. The advisory ended Dec. 27. Local, non-federal, law enforcement officers werent familiar with the specifics of the report Friday.

I wonder why the title says they disappear at an alarming rate.
Her body has been found.
Sad to say....her body has been found.
Elizabeth Warren would be safe out there.
So many missing Indian females? Is a serial killer out there targeting them?
Not to jump to conclusions, but there have been serial killers who target marginalized females such as street prostitutes. Has some monster found victims in Indian country?
The story makes it sound as if law enforcement has been slow to respond and investigate these cases. It sure sounds like a pattern has developed.

Almost 100%. Trying to figure out what 100% - 1/1024 is.....gotta get the calculator out.... :)
We watched Wind River the other night, there was a similair message...
Wind River, btw, is a good movie.

Brilliant! It’s not like you could die of thirst in 14 days. (earlier than that, of course)
Too bad she wasn’t suspected of Russian collusion. That might have gotten things going a bit faster.
Good question....Here, I found this at the article that was posted.....:
Montana U.S. Sens. Jon Tester and Steve Daines pointed out that two dozen Native American women in Montana have disappeared in 2018. Only one was found alive. Another was found dead.
Ouch, sorry. Not a thread to be joking around in. I didn’t know when I posted that that the girl’s body had been found.
Sounds liked we’ve got a big time serial killer on the loose up there. Hope they catch him soon.
One can't help but wonder if a local LEO is responsible for these disappearances.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Some tribals get paid on their shares. Oil Casinos. ETC.
Less shares more pay. Simple
Remember the Osage Indians of Oklahoma
Yes, it was. The standoff with the feds was intense...oops sorry!
Sexual abuse of children is a problem on the Reservations.
Battered and missing women are problems on the Reservations.
Alcoholism is a problem on the Reservations.
Drug use is a problem on the Reservations.
Accounting for money is a problem on the Reservations.
Suicide is a problem on the Reservations.
They dont have any problem voting for Democrats, though.
Reading Tony Hillerman’s stories can give you an insight into the peculiarities of reservation law enforcement. They have their own that takes precedence over outside agencies and they can be jealously protective of that. It could certainly complicate searching for a missing Indian girl.
Good reads there.
Very weak to non-existent cell phone service between Broadus and Hardin on US212.
