    Police Fear Missing Woman May Be Human Trafficking Victim


    On June 15, 23-year-old Jermain Austin Charlo disappeared from the Missoula area and has not been seen since.

    Missoula Police Detective Guy Baker said on Tuesday that law enforcement agencies are now taking the extra step of reaching out to the public for help in finding the missing young woman.

    “On Friday night, June 15th, she was at several bars, the Badlander, the Golden Rose and the Dark Horse,” Baker began. “She was last seen between midnight and 1:00 a.m. on June 16th between Russell and Orange Street and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since then.”

    Baker said officials fear the woman may have been a victim of human trafficking.

    “She has not been active on social media like she had been on a frequent and daily basis prior to June 16th,” he said. “Her pattern of life has been very disrupted and no one has heard from her. We have several different investigative possibilities that we’re following up and one of those includes that she may have been the victim of a trafficking situation.”

    Baker fears that every day that Jermaine Charlo is not heard from makes the search more desperate.

    “Every day she’s not heard from is concerning to us because she may be in a situation where her freedom has been compromised, where she doesn’t have access to the internet or a cell phone. This is very abnormal for her, and that’s why we believe she has disappeared under suspicious circumstances.”

    Police: Missing woman might be held against her will

    Police in Missoula are concerned that Jermain Charlo, reported missing last month, is being held against her will.

    Authorities are continuing to investigate the disappearance Charlo, 23 years old, who also goes by the name Liz.

    Charlo was reported missing on June 16th sometime between midnight and 1 a.m. after visiting the Badlander, Golden Rose, and Darkhorse bars in Missoula. She was reportedly last seen in the area of the Orange Street Food Farm.

    She was wearing a gray hoodie UnderArmour hoodie with a large UnderArmour camo logo in the middle at the time of her disappearance. She was also wearing a light blue baseball cap with a tan bill with three trees on the front logo.

    Investigators believe that Charlo is somewhere where her freedom is being restricted because of changes to her pattern of life -- specifically her lack of social media usage since she was last seen.

    "We're hopeful that we can find her, that she is somewhere safe. But the fact that she has not been on social media for over three weeks now is concerning to us because her pattern of life prior to that was that she was on there frequently and daily and she hasn't been," said MPD Detective Guy Baker.

    "She's somewhere where either her ability to move about freely or have access to the internet is being restricted, but something is going on that concerns us because of her lack of activity," Baker added.

    Police say they have received some new leads in the case but could not discuss them in any detail because of the ongoing investigation.

    MPD is working with the Missoula County Sheriff's Office, the Lake County Sheriff's Office and Flathead Tribal Police.

    Search ongoing for Dixon woman

    The search continues for a Dixon woman reported missing last month.

    “Jermain Charlo is still missing and we need to get her back,” Missoula Police Det. Guy Baker said last Wednesday, July 18.

    Baker said that currently, law enforcement knows through investigations that Charlo went out on Friday, June 15, to three bars in Missoula.

    She was dropped off between midnight and 1 a.m. June 16, on Fifth Street between Russell and Orange streets. Charlo was last seen walking east toward the Food Farm, Baker added.

    Over the course of the last month, Baker said that about one dozen people have been interviewed.

    Together, the agencies are researching a couple different investigative angles, one of which that Charlo could be a victim of human trafficking.

    Investigators believe that Charlo doesn’t have access to her cell phone or other ways to reach social media.

    Search continues for Jermain Charlo

    The LifeGuard Group continues to help search for Jermain Charlo who disappeared on June 16th in Missoula.

    The group organized the 7th search for Charlo Saturday. Search teams gathered at the Gray Wolf Peak Casino outside of Missoula.

    President of the LifeGuard Group Lowell Hochhalter said the family is still determined to find her.

    “A lot of tears as you can imagine. Wondering ...you know...where's my daughter? Where's my granddaughter? They are just determined that and we're gonna walk alongside them. We're not gonna stop until we get that answer for them,” said Hochhalter.

    Hochhalter added that law enforcement and search and rescue searched the same area about three weeks ago with dogs.

    Search continues for Dixon woman missing more than 4 months

    MISSOULA – MISSOULA – The Missoula Police Department has identified persons of interest in the disappearance of Jermain Charlo

    The agencies have conducted multiple searches including the use of cadaver dogs, looking through social media, emails and cell phone records, along with residential search warrants in Missoula County, Lake County and the Reservation.

    The results have led to a few different leads, one of those being related to a possible abduction into sex trafficking.

    A Community Searching

    Law enforcement has dedicated “hundreds and hundreds of hours” to the investigation, according to Guy Baker, a detective with the Missoula Police Department, which is heading up the investigation with assistance from the Missoula Sheriff’s Office, Flathead Tribal Police, Lake County Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    Whereas reservations present law enforcement complexities with both the federal government and tribal police, which often lack resources, sharing jurisdictional responsibilities, Charlo’s disappearance happened off-reservation. And even if it had happened on the reservation, the Flathead has a jurisdictional hierarchy unique among Montana reservations, which gives more oversight to the state and Lake County.

    For Baker, who is also a member of an FBI violent crime task force, Charlo’s case has been all-consuming, often taking up most of his week, even months later. Investigators have completed numerous searches including with cadaver dogs, examined cell phone records, executed search warrants, seized evidence and followed countless leads. The state crime lab is currently analyzing seized evidence.

    “I believe that she’s the victim of a criminal act,” Baker said. “I don’t believe she committed suicide on June 16. There are people who need to come forward and share what they know because somebody did something to her.”

    There are multiple persons of interest, and Baker said authorities are exploring three possible scenarios explaining her disappearance, including abduction as part of human trafficking. The acquaintance who said he dropped her off after the bars was the last person to see Charlo.

    “Obviously the last person to see a missing person is a suspect until you rule them out,” Baker said.
