Details of Disappearance

Dayna disappeared with her two-year-old son, Dakota J. Menger, and a friend, Junelle Marquard. They were last seen in Nekoosa, Wisconsin on August 20, 1999, when they dropped one of Dayna's children off at the babysitter's home. Dayna never came to pick her child up and she, Dakota and Junelle have never been heard from again.

When police checked Dayna's residence, they couldn't find anything unusual. Photographs and information for Dakota are unavailable, and it's unclear whether he is also listed as a missing person. Dayna may have ties to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Few details are available in the three cases.
