Rally organized in-front of Sheriff’s Office to shine light on missing Indigenous people

EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)-More than 100 people gathered in-front of The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office to shine a light on missing Indigenous men, women and children on the North Coast.

Jesse Armstrong is the rally’s organizer.

“We’re trying to show support we always need funding for search and rescue stuff like that, and just awareness in general,” said Armstrong.

There have been little to no funds to help search efforts surrounding missing Humboldt County cases, according to Armstrong.

There is a GoFundMe page set-up for families who are still looking for missing family members.

Funds raised will go directly to help families with expenses directly related to search efforts – such as transportation for example.

Funds will also be used to raise existing reward money – the goal is to motivate people with information to come forward with information. 

Amos Albers says, there are too many missing Indigenous cases in Humboldt County.

“Due to the fact that missing persons going on around here in Humboldt County with Native Americans and they’re not investigated enough, to find out what’s wrong,” Albers said. “I mean there’s still people missing.”
