In honor of Native American Heritage Month I’m featuring a Native American missing person for every day in the month of November. Today’s missing person is Michial David Annamitta Jr., who disappeared from Sawyer, Minnesota on November 23, 2013, at the age of 22.
I don’t have much on Annamitta’s disappearance, but it’s noted that he frequented the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. Sawyer is an unincorporated community on the edge of the Fond du Lac Indian Reservation, where the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa live, but I don’t know if Annamitta is a Chippewa.
He has both mental health and substance abuse issues; the two often go hand in hand. I found his Facebook page and was able to add some more photos from that. His final post (the final public one, anyway) is from three months before his disappearance:
The circumstances of Michial Annamitta’s disappearance are unclear. If still alive, he’d be 27 years old today.
