In the months before Mary Johnson disappeared, her sister said she wasn't herself.

The last time anyone said they saw Mary Johnson -- also known as Mary Davis -- was on November 25, 2020. Johnson, an enrolled citizen of the Tulalip Tribes and then 39 years old, was walking on a road in Western Washington, en route to the house of some friends in a nearby town. She never made it there.

"If that was a little White girl out there or a White woman, I'm sure they would have had helicopters, airplanes and dogs and searches -- a lot of manpower out there -- scouring where that person was lost," Nona Blouin, Johnson's older sister, said. "None of that has happened for our sister."
