HELENA — The Montana Missing Indigenous Persons Task Force held a meeting on Wednesday to provide an update on missing person cases.

According to the Missing Persons Specialist, 11 more people went missing since February 2020. As of July 20, 2020, out of 159 people missing, 41 of those are Native Americans.

The Task Force is currently working on providing a website with a notification form. This form can be used to report missing individuals.
