Duluth police offer reward to help find missing woman


Police in Duluth are now offering a reward for information about a woman who's been missing for nearly two months.

Sheila St. Clair, 48, was last seen on Sept. 1, according to the Duluth News Tribune, and her family and friends are pleading with the public to help find her.

At a Friday news conference, Lt. Mike Ceynowa said the police department suspects foul play in her disappearance, and announced a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of whoever is responsible, the News Tribune reports.

Authorities say they think St. Clair was planning to travel from Duluth to the White Earth Reservation in western Minnesota, but she never arrived there. An adult daughter reported her missing in early September, according to the newspaper.

St. Clair doesn't have a car, so police think she may have gotten a ride from someone.

"We just need anybody with any information to help. Please," said her nephew Dustin St. Clair, according to FOX 21.

Her family members say it's not normal for St. Clair to be out of touch for such a long time, and she hasn't been seen in any familiar places recently, FOX 21 reports.

Ceynowa said the tips that've come in to the police haven't panned out, so they're hoping the reward will spur more people to come forward with information, no matter how trivial they believe it is.

St. Clair is Native American, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 125 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact the Duluth Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit at (218) 730-5050.
