A Montana woman who has been missing for nearly two weeks is the focus of an investigation by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies are seeking the whereabouts of 36-year-old Kimberly Rose Hewankorn, who was reported missing Friday, April 12. The man who reported Hewankor missing said the two of them were staying at a friend’s house in the 1100 block of Dike Road in Mohave Valley after traveling from Montana.

The man said that Hewankorn left the residence on foot on Monday, April 1, and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Hewankorn is described as 5-feet-7-inches, about 138 pounds, with long brown hair and brown eyes, with freckles and a mole on her upper lip. She is described as Indian or Alaskan Native.

She was last seen carrying a white backpack with tribal designs.

Hewankorn previously faced charges of child endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia in Missoula, Montana, after a January 2016 incident at a hotel room.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Hewankorn is encouraged to contact Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Nyquist at 928-768-7071 ext. 232 or call toll free at 1-800-522-4312.
