    Michele Julson

    Julson, usually called Shelly, dropped off her 3-year-old son at his paternal grandfather's house around 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 2, 1994. She planned to pick up her paycheck from the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation, maybe play some bingo, then return for her son.

    Julson, 26 at the time, never picked up her paycheck, and police do not believe she played bingo that day. Her son's father and grandfather reported her missing that night when she didn't return for her son.

    Police searched Bismarck for Julson's light blue 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe, but did not find it initially. Connor was a patrol officer at the time and prided himself on his ability to find stolen vehicles or other vehicles police were seeking.

    "I looked high and low for that car when I was a patrolman," he said.

    On Aug. 8, the sporty blue car was found parked at the Comfort Inn in Bismarck. Police can't say for sure, but they do not believe it had been there since Aug. 2.

    "I think it would have been found earlier if it had been there,"Connor said.

    Since police initially believed Julson had left her vehicle at the Comfort Inn, her vehicle was not processed. The vehicle was clean, with the exception of a half-eaten gas station sandwich on the front seat, Connor said. He said Julson's father later told officers he found some scoria rock near the car's intake manifold. Connor said that might be significant because there is little, if any, scoria around Bismarck.

    People reported seeing Julson in Fargo, then at WeFest in Detroit Lakes, Minn. She was briefly taken off the missing persons list, but later was put back on when she had no contact with her family.

    Connor said police no longer believe she was ever at WeFest.

    Julson was very attached to her young son and close to her family, Connor said.

    "She had no intentions or no reasons to be leaving Bismarck," he said.

    Police do not believe she left Bismarck willingly.

    "With Michele, we do suspect foul play,"Connor said.

    Julson was a blackjack dealer with the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation. The night before she disappeared, she dealt blackjack at the Elbow Room. Connor said she may have met some workers that night who were staying at the Comfort Inn.

    Julson had many friends, was outgoing and could talk to anyone, Connor said.

    "Maybe she just ran into the wrong person,"he said.
    Michele has been missing for 16 years today. I do not find her listed in NamUs.

    All through the western part of North Dakota, you will find roads covered with scoria.
    I read where it is also found in the Badlands area of North Dakota. Perhaps we have a member here that is familiar with North Dakota? TIA.
