Details of Disappearance

Howard was last seen at a gas station Wolf Point, Montana, on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, on October 7, 1991. She has never been heard from again. She wasn't reported missing until November 10.

Howard lived in Fraser, Montana at the time of her disappearance. She left behind four children, as well as money in a tribal account. It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or be out of touch with her family; her aunt stated they were in contact regularly and saw her at least every other day. Few details are available in her case, but foul play is suspected.
