Tragically Indigenous Woman Jermain Charlo Still Missing After 5 Years


Over the past several years many Indigenous women have gone missing throughout the state of Montana but no case has been as talked about, advertised, and far-reaching as the disappearance of Jermain Charlo. The case has gained nationwide attention and June 16th marked the 5-year anniversary of her vanishing.

MISSOULA – It’s been five years to the day since Jermain Charlo was last seen alive.

A lot has changed in those five years, but one thing has stayed the same — her family’s desire for justice and the lead detective’s search for the truth. We not only spoke to Jermain’s aunt about who her niece is but that detective in the place he’s spent hours looking for her. And as we learned, Jermain’s story is still one we need to tell.

Her face on a billboard has stared north on Highway 93 near the Missoula Wye for five years.

It is the face of a 23-year-old Indigenous woman who disappeared five years ago, on June 16, 2018. Her name is Jermain Charlo, and she was last seen at a downtown Missoula bar on the night of June 15. Sometime after midnight on June 16, she vanished.
