Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Knows His Gun was last heard from on October 18, 2016. She was at a Walmart in Kennewick, Washington at the time. She called a friend in Billings, Montana and asked for an online money transfer so she would have enough money to get home to Crow Age at the time of disappearance: ncy, Montana, 740 miles away; she had promised her children she'd take them trick-or-treating for Halloween.
Her friend agreed to send her the money, and Knows His Gun said she was waiting at the Walmart customer service counter for it. Fifteen minutes later, her friend called her back to see if the money had arrived, but Knows His Gun's phone wasn't working anymore and she never picked up the money. She has never been heard from again.
Knows His Gun's family filed a missing persons report on November 14, after she missed her aunt's funeral; they had been close. Her loved ones stated she had been spending a lot of time in Billings, Montana before she went missing and had fallen in with a bad crowd. She was distancing herself from her family and began abusing drugs.
It's not uncharacteristic of Knows His Gun to drop out of sight for a few days at a time, but she's never been gone for this long. Since her disappearance, her new friends have been uncooperative with the police about her case. The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear and her case remains unsolved.

Montana Missing Persons Clearinghouse
A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
