Julie Hoffman



Bismarck Police are seeking help from the public in locating a missing and endangered Bismarck woman who has a condition that requires her to take medication.

Julie Hoffman, 24, was last seen on video surveillance on the 400 block of West Main Avenue Wednesday afternoon. Hoffman's medication will run out today, and, if she does not take her medicine, she will have physical difficulties, police said.

Police described Hoffman as white female, 5 feet, 7 inches, 120 pounds with brown shoulder-length hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a red jacket, black leggings and pink shoes.

She was last seen with Nathan Castillo, a 48-year-old Native American man whose address is listed as Eagle Butte, S.D. Police believe he may be driving a 1987 Chevrolet motor home, gray and orange with the South Dakota license plate WJV31. The vehicle may be towing a Jeep.

Anyone with information about Hoffman’s location is asked to call the Bismarck Police Department at 701-223-1212.
