MP of the week: Jamal Mohammed

This week’s featured missing person is Jamal “James” Mohammed, a Tampa, Florida dance club owner who disappeared on October 17, 2007. I’ve got a pretty broad weight range for him, 145 to 220 pounds. From his photo (which, admittedly, only shows his face and neck) I’d be guessing he was at the lighter end.

He was last seen on his way to the club he owned. He was never seen again and his car turned up abandoned with some of his stuff inside. Foul play is suspected.

Native American Heritage Month: David George

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 David Post George, age 21. I don’t have any tribal info for him.

He was last seen in Juneau, Alaska on March 7, 2005, but for some reason he wasn’t reported missing till 2007. I have no other information.

Native American Heritage Month: Sumi Juan

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 Sumi Gail Juan, a 33-year-old Hoopa woman who disappeared from Hoopa, California on September 8, 2010.

Hoopa, California is a town in northern California and per Wikipedia, 80-plus percentage of the population is Native.

The police noted they had two persons of interest, also Native, whom they wanted to talk to: Robert Hodge Jr. and Debra Jealous-Of-Him.

It’s worth noting I’ve found NO mention AT ALL about Sumi since 2010 and I’m not 100% sure she is still missing.

Native American Heritage Month: Andrew Lufkins

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 Andrew Jon Lufkins, a 23-year-old Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate man who disappeared from Sisseton, a town in the northeast corner of South Dakota, on April 7, 2010.

It looks pretty obvious what happened. Lufkins was in a bar fight and was carried, seriously injured and unconscious, from the bar. He was never seen or heard from again.

His disappearance reminds me of Star Gail Boomer‘s. Star, a white woman, also disappeared after getting into a physical altercation at a bar and is presumed to have been murdered. Two suspects were charged, but the charges were dropped after “over a dozen witnesses to the alleged crime refused to testify against the defendants.”

Lufkins would be 32 years old today. But I think he’s still 23.

Native American Heritage Month: Sally Hines

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 Sally Ann Hines, a 58-year-old Seaconke Wampanoag woman who disappeared from San Antonio, Texas on December 14, 2017. The Seaconke Wampanoags are from Rhode Island.

I found this flier from the Facebook group Missing and Taken Indigenous People that has a little more info about her, including a photo of her in the clothes she was last seen wearing, and the fact that she has breast implants.

Sally has multiple health problems including PTSD, bipolar disorder and a liver transplant. She needs daily medication to keep her body from rejecting her donor liver. Because of this I don’t see how she could still be alive. If she is alive she must be in VERY bad shape. She would be about 60 today.

MP of the week: Donald Hicks

This week’s featured missing person is Donald Lamond Hicks, a 33-year-old black man who disappeared from Hazelwood, Missouri on April 2, 2011.

He was last seen leaving a bar. Never made it home apparently, and wasn’t carrying his phone. His car turned up abandoned on a local interstate exit. I don’t know what condition it was in, if it was in running order or what.

He’s got some tattoos and two gold teeth. Nothing else remarkable about his appearance. If still alive he’d be 42 later this month.

Native American Heritage Month: Darian Nevayaktewa

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 Darian Rae Nevayaktewa, a 19-year-old man of Hopi Pueblo heritage who disappeared from Kykotsmovi, Arizona on June 19, 2008.

Wikipedia says Kykotsmovi Village, also called K-Town, is the seat of government for the Hopi tribe on their reservation, which covers 1.5 million acres across three mesas and two counties.

Unfortunately I don’t have any more information on this case.
