Lone Bear

Heading into the weekend, searchers on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation still have no sign of Olivia Lone Bear.

The 32-year-old mother of five was last seen leaving a New Town saloon on Oct. 24. Fifty-four searchers turned out Thursday and 38 on Friday to find her.

Search efforts have included K9s and Civil Air Patrol for air support and telephone forensics. Three Affiliated Tribes Police Detective Sam Lincoln said weather has now affected air support.

"There's not enough visibility for them to be up," he said Friday evening. "We haven't employed anything other than people out searching the area."

Searching began Wednesday afternoon.

Lincoln said searchers are focusing on the reservation for now, though police are following up on leads that Lone Bear may be out of state with another person.

Her brother, Matthew Lone Bear, previously said other agencies from Belcourt and Fargo would help with the weekend search.

"We're all still hopeful and we're all staying diligent to figure this out," he said.

Olivia Keri Lone Bear, 32, of New Town, is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 130 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has scars on her right front shoulder and one of her palms. She also has several tattoos and pierced ears.

She was last seen in a teal 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD LT crew cab with a silver toolbox and North Dakota license plate 839 BRC.
