    Rita Papakee

    TAMA COUNTY — Tuesday searchers spent another evening looking for a woman first reported missing last month. 41-year-old Rita Papakee was reporting missing to law enforcement January 1.

    Thirty-eight of Papakee’s family and friends spent an hour searching a wooded area near the Meskwaki Powwow grounds looking for any sign of her, Tuesday, from 4:30 to nightfall. A larger group searched the area Monday night.

    Family said the Tama County woman lives with her daughter. Her cousin Noelle Youngbear said Papakee left home more than a month ago and disappeared without a trace.

    Papakee was last seen on January 16 when her sister dropped her off at a friend's home on the Meskwaki settlement. They said the mother of four had a habit of disappearing for a couple weeks at time, but never this long.

    Tribal police have partnered with the FBI and other agencies to find Papakee.
