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:
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.
