Blackfoot woman still missing after 3 months

Posted: Updated:

It's now been three months since the family of Ashley Loring HeavyRunner has had any contact with her.

There has been reported sightings, but she still remains missing. We actually first saw this case come across our Twitter feed with the hashtag MMIW which stands for missing and murdered indigenous women. After that, it was on Facebook being shared by her family and friends, but what we didn't see was any emails come into our newsroom about it, no missing persons report, or a "Be On the Lookout" alert. 

Ashley's sister Kimberly and her family have continued their search all summer long. She said the only thing they have been told by their local law enforcement is they are following up on leads, she said it's not clear what kind of leads those are. But she firmly believes her sister is alive. 

"I can't think the worst yet because it if i do it's just going to be harder, so if I still have that hope we'll be stronger to find Ashley," said Loring. 

Kimberly said during one of their searches they may have found some of Ashley's clothing buried in a dump between Babb and Saint Mary's. She said as far as she knows law enforcement has not searched that area. 

We called the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Billings and were directed to the head office in Washington DC. Their Public Information Officer says they are looking into it and will be in contact when they have more information. Blackfeet Law Enforcement has not responded.

    Why is Montana state revenue lower than expected?

    After the state of Montana struggled with a surprising $227 million budget deficit in 2017, many are wondering why the state's revenue is so weak at a time when the economy is growing.  An economist says it's largely due to Montana's reliance on income tax. Patrick Barkey, director of UM's Bureau of Business and Economic Research, says the state's tax system mostly relies on income tax. Montana's wage and salary workers are doing well, but it seems that business owners and agri...

  • New Park District public hearing set

    New Park District public hearing set

    Wednesday, January 17 2018 12:45 AM EST2018-01-17 05:45:12 GMT

    The Great Falls City Commission is releasing an updated proposal for a park district. This new version comes after the first proposal did not make it past voters last year. The biggest change is the amount of money the city is asking for. Instead of 2.27 million dollars from the taxpayers, it will be 1.5million dollars. Meaning the maximum property owners will pay in a year would be roughly 22 dollars a year, or less than 2 dollars a month. The parks department says this proposal n...

    Police say they have several leads and are working hard to find the criminals and get the machine back to its rightful owner, but one patron said he doesn't think they were after the cash, but instead the pin numbers stored inside that machine, which could lead to a bigger problem for the bar and grille.
     

    The suspects got away after leading officers with the Lewis and Clark county Sheriff's Department on a dangerous chase along Lincoln Road after they broke into the Causeway Chalet and stole the bar's ATM.
