Details of Disappearance

Harding was last seen walking on Buena Vista Drive in Billings, Montana at 4:00 p.m. on July 23, 2018.

She had been living on the streets there off and on for most of the spring and summer, and behaved erratically, but did keep in touch with her family. She visited the Tumbleweed Runaway Center, a non-profit organization that provides services to runaway and homeless youth. Her mother reported her missing on August 20, after the family realized no one had seen or heard from Harding in almost a month.

Harding has ties to Fort Riley, Kansas and to New Mexico, as well as Fort Belknap and Billings, Montana. The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear, but her loved ones are concerned for her safety and believe she may have been the victim of human trafficking.
