Details of Disappearance

Kunayak was last seen in Nome, Alaska on November 18, 1990. She was walking down Front Street near the Nome Nugget Inn at the time. She has never been heard from again.

Approximately 20 members of Alaska's Native American community have vanished or died under questionable circumstances in the Nome area since the 1960s. Authorities opened a probe into their deaths and disappearances, but they do not believe a serial predator was involved.
