Olivia Lone Bear, a 32-year-old mother

of five from New Town, North Dakota,

was last seen in that community on

October 24, 2017.

Nine months later, her submerged pickup truck, with her body inside, was found in a lake not far from her home. At that time, her family called for more organized communication among law enforcement agencies in the search for missing persons.

One year after the discovery, on July 31, 2019, KYFY Television in North Dakota reported that the investigation by the FBI into Olivia’s disappearance and death is ongoing, and that any release of information could possibly jeopardize the case.
