    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.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    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.
