17-year-old Stella was last seen in her hometown of Bethel, Alaska on September 29, 1996. She had been out with friends the previous night and when she came home in the early morning hours, she couldn't get her grandmother to wake up and let her in.
The police station was nearby and Stella went there for help. The officer took her to her sister's studio apartment and left her there at approximately 4:30 a.m.
Stella apparently left her sister's residence between 5:00 and 6:00 a.m. She has never been heard from again and is considered to be missing under suspicious circumstances. She may still be in the local area, or she may be in the Anchorage, Alaska area. Her case remains unsolved.
Some agencies give the date of Stella's disappearance as August 26, 1996.
Stella is described as a Native American female with black hair, and brown eyes. Stella's ears are double-pierced. Her hair is curly and extended down to her waist at the time of her disappearance. She is of Yu'pik Eskimo descent. Her height is 4'11 and her weight is 100 pounds. She was last wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with the Georgetown University logo imprinted on the front, a brown leather jacket, blue jeans, and black shoes. As of 2020, her case remains unsolved. Her case is classified as an Endangered Missing.
