    Details of Disappearance

    Eagleshield was last seen at a friend's residence along Country Road 126 near Island Lake in rural Becker County, Minnesota in the early morning hours of October 5, 2014. Her friend thought she left sometime between 3:00 and 5:00 a.m. She left all of her belongings behind, including her shoes and her purse, and has never been heard from again. She didn't own a cellular phone at the time of her disappearance and there hasn't been any activity on her credit cards. Eagleshield apparently left the house on foot, but she has been known to accept rides from passing motorists. An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of her and her case remains unsolved.
