Bemidji Police are asking for tips from the public as they attempt to locate a runaway teen who has been missing for nearly two months.

Police say the family of 15-year-old Nevaeh Leigh Kingbird reported her as a runaway on Oct. 22. Kingbird was last seen leaving a Southview Terrace Park residence alone at about 2 a.m. that day and has not been in contact with family or friends since then.

Searches of the immediate area, as well as the area of a party she had attended earlier in the evening, have not turned up any information about Kingbird's location.

Kingbird is a Native American female with a light complexion. She is 5'4" tall, weighs 120 pounds, has brown eyes, and has a scar near her left eyebrow. She has dark-colored long hair with highlights and was last seen wearing jeans and athletic slide-type shoes.

Police are working with the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and the FBI in their investigation.

People who may have information on Kingbird's whereabouts should call 218-333-9111. Anonymous tips can be made through Crime Stoppers at or by calling 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), and a reward of up to $1,000 may be available through Crime Stoppers.
