Missoula police investigating missing Native woman

A 33-year-old Native American woman is missing out of Missoula.

Megan Lynn Pinkerton has been missing since June 17. She is a member of the Fort Peck Assiniboine Sioux Tribe, according to the Montana Department of Justice Missing Persons Database.

Pinkerton has brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5 feet and 7 inches tall and weighs about 135 pounds, the database states.

Arnold explained no two missing persons cases are the same, and there are several possible scenarios for investigations involving missing adults.
