Details of Disappearance

Benally was last seen at his sister's apartment in Winslow, Arizona on May 1, 1972. He stayed there for a few hours, then left and did not return, and she assumed she went back to his own home on the Navajo reservation. In fact, he had not. A few weeks passed before his family realized none of them had seen him since he left his sister's home.

Few details are available in Benally's case; it remains unsolved.
