At least 710 Indigenous people went missing between 2011 and 2020, according to a January report published by Wyoming's Missing and Murdered Indigenous Task Force. Of those that disappeared, 57 percent were female.
These numbers also indicate the people who were reported and recorded to law enforcement and does not include cases that were not documented by authorities.
The study, developed by the University of Wyoming's Wyoming Survey & Analysis Center, found that while half of those missing persons were found within a week, 21 percent of them went missing for a month or longer. Comparably, only 11 percent of white people remain missing for that long.
On Sunday, authorities said that remains consistent with a description of Petito were found in Wyoming—just more than a week after her family reported missing.
While the disappearance of Petito has garnered national media attention and search efforts from multiple law enforcement agencies, many of the missing person cases analyzed in the state report did not receive the level of public outcry seen in recent weeks.
A culmination of an 18-month effort led by the state's Division of Victim Services, the study found that only 18 percent of Indigenous women who were reported missing received newspaper media coverage.
Researchers also found that media coverage of missing Indigenous persons was more likely to have negative character framing and less likely to exist when they were still missing. Many times, articles were only published after an individual was found dead.
She said she hopes the Petito case will motivate people to be just as impassioned to use those tools to help many families who are still looking for their loved ones.
"Why haven't Black and brown bodies received attention that their white counterparts [have]?" Chambers said. "We're encouraged by where the conversation is going."
In 2020, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed legislation aimed at improving data collection of missing and murdered people and at providing law enforcement enhanced training.
Chambers said that while it may seem like there has been an increase in missing persons cases recently, it is really a testament to the local police departments' abilities to record and report more cases.
"We're doing a better job at getting that information out there," she said. "It's really meeting the people where they're at."

On July 30, 1997, Jewell testified before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Crime. Now forget, for a moment, that the FBI had the wrong person the whole time, here’s what life was like for him:
“The FBI wasted millions of dollars and thousands of manhours following me, my mother, my attorneys, my friends, always with three or four cars, sometimes with as many as five or six cars, and with airplanes,” he told the committee. “The FBI followed me 24 hours a day. They followed me into restaurants, hardware stores, grocery stores, to my lawyers' offices, to my friends' homes, and to the funeral home where I went to say goodbye to a close friend who had been like a father figure to me for many years. They even followed me to my Little League field where I coach football for 10-year-old kids.”
Social media is full of people blaming the North Port Police Department for this, being it's full of hicks and all, but Laundrie’s disappearance is not on them.
A crime was not committed in North Port’s jurisdiction. Petito went missing in Wyoming. Her body was found in Wyoming. North Port is not in Wyoming. Thus, the FBI.
At one point, the parents went to the reserve and retrieved the Ford Mustang that Laundrie was driving. This means the Cyber Ninjas did not sneak Laundrie out of the house he shared with his parents. Nor did he tunnel out like El Chapo. He hopped in a car, stuck it in reverse, and bolted. Parents have a harder time navigating the car line at school.
How difficult could this have been? Do you mean an FBI agent couldn't dress like a media person and stand outside the Laundrie house? They couldn't plant a camera with a neighbor? There are cameras watching you walk out of Publix, and yet the most wanted person in America just backs his car out free and clear? At least at Publix, there’s a chance you'll hit a cart.
Let's say they tail him to Carlton Reserve, where his parents claim they picked up the car. Then you can let a drone follow him through the swamp. Not that he was ever there anyway.
Of course, he wasn't, but that fruitless search charade over the weekend will cost taxpayers plenty nonetheless. A possible scenario is he drove to the preserve, was picked up by an accomplice, and his parents knew but didn’t call authorities for three days. That's a three-day head start. Might as well be a month. And it's all on the FBI.
Do you know how easy it is for someone to disappear? Remember John Pyle, the creep from Sarasota arrested on multiple child porn charges a few years ago? He bonded out, boarded a cruise ship, no passport required, hopped off when it docked in Mexico, and no one's seen him since either.
“These guys are full of s–t,” Taylor said. “We have a missing person case, and we don't have anyone to talk to, and we don’t have any evidence of a crime on a case that’s outside our jurisdiction,’’ he said. “This guy goes for a hike in a 25,000-acre nature reserve. How are we following him? I’m up for anybody’s idea.”
Taylor, according to the story, then wondered why the FBI is not being grilled. He’s exactly right.
It’s not like you’ll hit anyone.
