Details of Disappearance

Newberry was last seen at the Mellen Jam music festival on Gilgen Road in Mellen, Wisconsin on May 27, 2018. She went there with a male companion, who said they were camping together and were walking out from the remote campsite, with her trailing behind him, when she suddenly disappeared.

She was seen going down to a creek that evening. She never returned and has never been heard from again, and extensive searches turned up no indication of her whereabouts.

There has been no activity on Newberry's cellular phone, credit cards or social media accounts since she went missing. It's uncharacteristic of her to be out of touch with her family. Her sisted stated the man she was with changed his story several times after her disappearance.

Newberry has five children. The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear.
