It’s been nearly 27 years since 16-year-old Dawn Nakedhead vanished from Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Rumors have circulated that Dawn ran away. If this were the case, Dawn has managed to avoid contact with her large Native American family and has somehow avoided any online presence. Whatever the case, someone, perhaps several people, know where she is and what happened to her.
