Johnson is described as 5-foot-6, 115 pounds, with a sunburst-type tattoo on her upper right arm. She was 39 years old when she disappeared.  

The FBI, which is working with the Tulalip Tribal Police on the investigation, is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of person(s) responsible for Johnson’s disappearance.

The city of Seattle ranked first in the nation for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
