Lissa Loring points Blackfeet law enforcement officers to a trailer in Valier, Mont., where she believes clues have been found during a search for her cousin, Ashley HeavyRunner Loring, who went missing last year from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, Wednesday, July 11, 2018. This search is motivated, in part, by the family's disappointment with the reservation police force_ a common sentiment for many relatives of missing Native Americans. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
