Native American Heritage Month: Nathan Yazzie

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 Nathan Francis Yazzie, who disappeared from Farmington, NM in March 2014. I don’t have tribal info for him.

Yeah, so on Namus and on the New Mexico DPS site, the date of his disappearance is given as March 12. However, Nathan, or someone posing as him, created a Facebook page on March 13 and made several posts that day and the following, including:

nyazzie3

nyazzie5

The Facebook activity stopped March 14, at least publicly. A police blotter I found notes the date of his disappearance as March 31, which might explain where the “March 13” mistake came from; someone transposed the numbers and the error trickled down to all the other sources.

He remains listed as a missing person but I can’t find out much about him or his disappearance.

        I mean he would be missing at 33 or 34 yrs old if he was born in 1980 and went missing in 2014.

    Wow, wearing sunglasses can sure change how a person looks. From the fb profile pic change, I thought that photo looked like a female.

    lostandmissinginindiancountry.com also has a large listing, over 400 I think, in pdf format broken down by state of Native Americans missing. “The Drum” magazine.

      The long hair contributed to the androgynous appearance there.
