BEMIDJI, Minn. (FOX 9) - Indigenous groups and law enforcement are working together to conduct a large-scale search for evidence in the disappearance of Nevaeh Kingbird.
Kingbird went missing in October 2021, when she was seen leaving a party and then leaving a second location an hour later. According to Bemidji police, the 15-year-old's disappearance started as a runaway case.
The investigation intensified in December 2021, when no one had heard from her since October. That led to searches and collaborations with the FBI and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).
This search will take place Monday, Sept. 25, and Tuesday, Sept. 26. About 100 people, including seven K-9 teams, will conduct a grid search of more than 150 acres in Bemidji.
Kingbird is described as having brown hair, and brown eyes. She is 5-foot-5 and 120 pounds. If you have any tips on Kingbird, call 1-833-560-2065.
