Mr Erdman,

Thank you for this response. This request is for a national project assessing law enforcement and court response to cases of missing Native American youth, which will be published by Sovereign Bodies Institute. We understand the State of Wisconsin does not maintain data on missing Native Americans, and we will print that in the report.

Thanks,
Annita
