Searching for answers at Missing in New Mexico Day

The mother of a missing Hopi boy came to a missing people awareness event looking for answers but finding few

Darian Nevayaktewa went missing 15 years ago from northeastern Arizona. He was 19 and living in New Mexico with his mother, Lynette Pino. But it was during a summer visit to the Hopi reservation where his father lived that he disappeared after going to a gathering and never coming home.

Pino hasn’t stopped looking for answers about what happened to her son.

“We take it one day at a time and just pray that one of these days something will come out,” Pino said.
