Details of Disappearance

Knows Gun was last heard from on October 18, 2016. She was at a Walmart in Kennewick, Washington at the time. She called a friend in Billings, Montana and asked for an online money transfer so she would have enough money to get home to Crow Agency, Montana, 740 miles away; she had promised her children she'd take them trick-or-treating for Halloween.

Her friend agreed to send her the money, and Knows Gun said she was waiting at the Walmart customer service counter for it. Fifteen minutes later, her friend called her back to see if the money had arrived, but Knows Gun's phone wasn't working anymore and she never picked up the money. She has never been heard from again.

Knows Gun's family filed a missing persons report on November 14, after she missed her aunt's funeral; they had been close. Her loved ones stated she had been spending a lot of time in Billings, Montana before she went missing and had fallen in with a bad crowd. She was distancing herself from her family and began abusing drugs.

It's not uncharacteristic of Knows Gun to drop out of sight for a few days at a time, but she's never been gone for this long. Since her disappearance, her new friends have been uncooperative with the police about her case. The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear and her case remains unsolved.

Crow Agency, Montana police are investigating Knows Gun's case.
