    Mary Johnson Davis (40) missing from the Tulalip Indian Reservation in Marysville, WA since 1/25/2020

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/18/us/ma...ard/index.html

    The FBI has announced a reward for information on Mary Johnson, a Native American woman who went missing from the Tulalip Reservation in Washington state in December 2020
    .
    The agency is offering $10,000 for information leading to the "identification, arrest, and conviction" of whoever is responsible for her disappearance, according to a Twitter post issued Wednesday.

    Mary Johnson, 40, also known as Mary Johnson Davis, was reported missing on December 9, 2020, according to the FBI's Most Wanted website. She was last seen November 25, 2020, as she walked on Firetrail Road on the Tulalip Indian reservation in Marysville, Washington on her way to a friend's house. She never arrived, according to the FBI.

    Her disappearance is being investigated by the FBI's Seattle Field Office and the Tulalip Tribal Police.

    Johnson is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes and a "sunburst-type tattoo on her upper right arm," the FBI said. She also has a scar across her nose and a birthmark on the back of her neck, according to Tulalip news channel Tulalip TV.

    Following the disappearance, Johnson's family put up a billboard on Interstate 5 near the reservation asking anyone with information to contact the Tulalip Tribal Police, according to CNN affiliate KING-TV.
    Johnson's siblings told KING-TV they weren't aware of their sister's disappearance until her estranged husband contacted police.

    "He said that she has been gone for a couple of weeks and that she is not normally gone that long," her sister, Gerry Davis, told KING 5.

    "If Mary has seen this video, please contact somebody, reach out some way if you're in trouble," Davis said in a video on Tulalip TV. "If she's not okay, let her come home. Bring her home, for closure, for us, if it happened that way. Because it is an awful feeling to not know where you are at."

    The FBI is asking anyone with information regarding her location or disappearance to call the agency's Seattle office or their local FBI office or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov.

    A year after Mary Johnson's disappearance, federal officials are finally acting on the crisis of missing Indigenous people in America

    Mary Johnson was on her way to a friend's home in Oso, Washington, the day before Thanksgiving, but she never made it. A year later, her disappearance remains a mystery.
    Johnson, then 39 years old and an enrolled citizen of the Tulalip Tribes, was last seen on the reservation on November 25, 2020.

    Even though family members have posted flyers, put up a billboard on a local interstate, and a reward for information was offered by the FBI, Johnson, like many other missing Indigenous women in the United States, has not been found.

    "At this point, we're information-driven, any information we get is followed up on, but leads are harder and harder to find as we get further along," said Wayne Schakel, a detective sergeant with the Tulalip Tribal Police Department.

    For years, families and activists have demanded that authorities direct more attention and resources to cases involving missing and murdered Indigenous women, arguing their cases are often overlooked or dismissed. Federal and state officials have recently publicly acknowledged that there is a "crisis of violence" against Native Americans, and have launched efforts to address it, but advocates say their response is not enough.

    "Nothing has changed. Nothing has changed for our communities. The rate of violence has not decreased. The rate of prosecution has not increased," said Annita Lucchesi, executive director of the Sovereign Bodies Institute, an organization that has been tabulating cases of missing and murdered Native Americans for several years.

    Last week, President Joe Biden signed an executive order directing federal agencies, including the departments of Justice, Interior and Homeland Security, to create a strategy within 240 days to address this "crisis of violence" against Native Americans.

    "For far too long, justice has been elusive for many Native American victims, survivors, and families. Criminal jurisdiction complexities and resource constraints have left many injustices unaddressed," Biden said in the order.

    The President also said, "previous executive action has not achieved changes sufficient to reverse the epidemic."

    Nearly 5,300 American Indian and Alaska Native girls and women were reported missing last year, data from the National Crime Information Center shows. Of those cases, 578 were reported "active" at the end of the year.

    Advocates and experts say those figures are not comprehensive, and a number of groups, like the Sovereign Bodies Institute, have taken it upon themselves to collect data as a way to raise awareness and hold law enforcement agencies accountable.

    Lucchesi, who is a descendant of the Cheyenne Tribe, says a key issue fueling this crisis is the lack of empathy for victims from both community members and law enforcement.

    "Families still have the same needs they had two years ago, five years ago. Law enforcement are still ignoring them. Cases are still going unsolved and violence continues to occur," she said.
