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 Rosalita F. Longee, an 18-year-old woman who disappeared from Wapato, Washington on June 30, 2015. Although I don’t know her tribe for sure, Wapato is located within the boundaries of the Yakama Indian Reservation.
I don’t know much about Rosalita’s disappearance, just that she left home after an argument. She is mentioned in this October 2018 article about indigenous women who went missing or were murdered on or near the Yakama reservation; her name was added to the list after the fact, and the article quotes the Charley Project as a source. The only additional info I could glean from it is that her nickname is Rose.
I got all the photos of Rosalita from her Facebook page; she enjoyed taking selfies and the most recent one was posted six months before her disappearance.
