Family, friends of Rosenda Strong mark two years since she disappeared, bring awareness of missing and murdered Native people


October 5, 2020

Friday marked two years to the day that Rosenda Sophia Strong, a 31-year-old mother of four, left her sister’s home in Toppenish, never to be seen alive again.

In those two years, Cissy Strong Reyes has been her sister’s voice, sharing her story in local, national and international media and at public events as she pleaded for information. Strong’s remains were found in an abandoned freezer just outside the city on July 4, 2019. Her death has been classified as a homicide and the FBI is investigating.

Reyes and their brother, Christopher Strong, cousin Roxanne White and other family and friends have sought justice for Strong and the countless other missing and murdered Native women, girls, men and boys on and beyond the Yakama Reservation.
