TULALIP, Wash. — The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the disappearance of a Native American woman.
Agents with the FBI’s Seattle Field Office and Tulalip Tribal Police are investigating the disappearance of Mary Johnson, who also goes by the name Mary E. Davis.
She was last seen Nov. 25, 2020, walking east on Firetrail Road on the Tulalip Reservation.
Authorities said Johnson was heading to a friend’s house but never arrived.
She was reported missing Dec. 9, 2020.
Johnson is 40 years old, Native American/Alaskan Native, 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 115 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She has a sunburst-type tattoo on her upper right arm.
Anyone with information about Johnson’s whereabouts or the person responsible for her disappearance is asked to call the FBI’s Seattle Field Office at 206-622-0460. You can also contact your local FBI office, the nearest American Embassy or Consulate or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov.
“This case just emphasizes that these women are not lost to us and we want to find some answers,” said Steve Bernd, FBI Seattle.
This is the first time in several years the FBI has gotten involved in a case with the Tulalip Tribe.
Unfortunately, numbers suggest it will not be the last time either.
In Washington State alone, authorities say there are currently 100 missing Indigenous people.
Many cases are like Johnson’s in which people literally vanish without warning.
