    Information requested on Shannon's case again as cold case investigators look at some Nevada cases again. It does say here that "Her mother was again interviewed in 2009, in Redding, Calif., where a DNA sample was taken after a body found murdered in Phoenix matched Shantelle's description. The DNA comparison is currently under way. "

    If you were in Dayton 23 years ago you might be able to help solve a cold case

    She was a teenager attending high school and had only lived in Dayton for two weeks when she vanished. That was 23 years ago when the last time anyone recalls seeing the petite 16-year-old brunette during a street dance on or about Nov. 14, 1988.

    One agency is reopening the missing person 'cold case' of Shantelle Hudson in hope that anyone who was in the Dayton area when Hudson was in town can think back and try to recall even the smallest detail that could lead to solving the case.

    What I wonder about this case is about the street dance she was last seen at. What exactly was it? A block party? The fact that she was seen 2 days after her disappearance suggests she is voluntarily missing....at least at first.

    Also, was the dance sighting ever confirmed? Was she seen there with anyone? And there was speculation she was seeing a guy around the time of her disappearance; therefore, were her friend's ever interviewed?

    Another thing I find odd is that there is little information regarding the day of her disappearance, like where she was last seen. It just mentions that her mom reported her missing on that day. Her case wasn't re-opened until a relative realized she was never located. I always wonder about the mother in these cases, like why they weren't more involved in her child's disappearance.

    ^^^

    Shantelle Hudson was a Native woman. There is tribal land in Lyon County, where Dayton is located -- the Yerington Paiute Tribe Reservation is in that area, part of the Walker River Indian Reservation is in Lyon County, and a tiny tiny part of the Pyramid Lake Reservation is there too. I don't have any information that links Shantelle to any of those tribes, much less information that she was a member of the Paiute more generally, but that's something to consider. Unfortunately, the crime rate against Native women was and is so dire compared to the crime rates against other populations, I so hope that Shantelle left of her own accord and didn't fall victim to something terrible.

    Re the street dance: Dayton isn't very big (it's, like, 9,000 people now so it's a good guess that it was smaller back then). It's maybe... 45 minutes from Reno? Less from Carson City, though Carson City is even smaller. I'd be amazed if that crowd at that party was so big that people didn't see Shantelle, assuming she was there like it's been reported. Seems like the most info that's out there, though, is that she may have been there with friends that her mother disapproved of.

    After doing some digging, my semi-educated guess is that Shantelle was a member of the Oglala Lakota Nation. I guess I can't even go so far as to say "member", actually, so I'm gonna go with "Shantelle had family ties to the Oglala Lakota Nation/Pine Ridge Reservation". The reason I'm harping on this is b/c (1) Native women really do go missing or a victims of crimes at an astonishing, unacceptable rate and Shantelle might have been part of this trend; (2) there may be records of her there that could be useful, especially if it's ever determined she made it out of NV. Mostly I'm sad there's not more information about this beautiful young lady available and my heart goes out to her family.

    Here is a link to the masterlist of the NV Rural Unidentified Missing & Crime Victims mentioned in this article:

    And here is the text of the 2011 article linked above (that link is now broken):

    She was a teenager attending high school and had only lived in Dayton for two weeks when she vanished. That was 23 years ago when the last time anyone recalls seeing the petite 16-year-old brunette during a street dance on or about Nov. 14, 1988.

    One agency is reopening the missing person 'cold case' of Shantelle Hudson in hope that anyone who was in the Dayton area when Hudson was in town can think back and try to recall even the smallest detail that could lead to solving the case.

    The Nevada Threat Analysis Center (NTAC) wants to find out what happened to Hudson. For more than a year the agency's Terrorism Liaison Officer Program has collected information from law enforcement officials concerning unsolved rural female homicides and selected missing person cases. They now have a master list to share with cold case investigators in other states.

    Today they are asking for the public's help to develop potential leads that could solve Hudson's disappearance. She is described at the time of her disappearance as being a white female teen who stood 5 feet 5 inches tall with a slim build (120 pounds) and brown eyes and hair. She was born in 1972 and would be 39-years-old today.

    Her mother, Lenan Garner, lived in Bishop, Calif., before moving to Dayton. She now lives in Redding, Calif.

    Hudson was reported missing after attending school in Dayton, but witnesses claim she was seen at the street dance two days after she had left home. Authorities say her mother didn't approve of the friends that she was hanging around with. She has never contacted friends or relatives since the day she vanished.

    Her mother was interviewed again last year and gave a DNA sample to determine if there could be a possible match to an unknown murder victim in Phoenix, Ariz.

    The agency says there has been no activity related to Hudson's Social Security Number through the years.

    Anyone who might have even the smallest detail about Hudson is asked to contact Jim Lopey at 775-687-0450 or e-mail atac@dps.state.nv.us regarding Lyon County case number 88-21-36. Potential leads will be forwarded to the Lyon County Sheriff's Office.

    Well I've been asking long time residents of Dayton if they recall this girl missing and the answer is no. I've only asked about 20 people. I used to live in Dayton myself from 2008-2015. There simply aren't enough details given to the public for the public to help. For example why did the mother disapprove of the friends. What kind of street dance? Because seriously to this day I have never heard of a street dance in Dayton. Also what about the teachers at school or friends or mother why didn't any of them give a description of what she was wearing. What about her teeth why didn't the mother give a description about her teeth. I would really like to know if these friends were made at school and if so at the Dayton school because then we could go from there maybe...Im going to go walk around the Dayton park and think about this one...
