Selena Not Afraid: Search for Missing Montana Teen


January 6, 2020

Selena (Selina) Not Afraid.

Selena Not Afraid is a missing Native American teenager described as a positive, loving 16-year-old who played basketball and loved riding horses. Selena, a member of two Indian nations, the Crow and Nakota, was last seen on New Year's Day at a rest stop in Montana, authorities say. There is a massive search effort to find the teenager, who vanished in mysterious circumstances involving a van full of friends, but her family wants federal authorities to treat the case with greater urgency.

The official story is that Selena ran off into a field near the Interstate rest stop and disappeared after being left there with another young Native American woman the family says was found with scratched legs from running through bushes and without shoes, hiding in a ditch. It almost sounds like the plot of the movie Wind River, which featured a missing Native American woman who runs without shoes in frigid weather; however, the family of Selena Not Afraid strongly believes she is still alive, and this missing person's case is all too real.
