The desperate search for a Native American teen missing in Montana since New Year’s Day has come to a tragic end.

Authorities discovered the body of Selena Shelley Faye Not Afraid on Monday about a mile away from a highway rest stop near Billings, where she was last seen alive on Jan. 1. An autopsy will be conducted to determine her cause of death, but authorities do not suspect foul play at this time, according to a press release from the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office.

“It is with great sadness that we have to report the body of Selena Faye Not Afraid has been found by searchers,” Big Horn County Sheriff Lawrence Big Hair said.

“We want to thank all the agencies and civilians that helped in searching for Selena. We are also thankful for the many people that donated food and water for the searchers and the family.”

According to the Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office, Selena vanished shortly after a vehicle she’d been traveling in with six others stalled near a rest area on Interstate-90 between Billings and Hardin. The 16-year-old, who lived with her mother on the Crow Reservation near Billings, wandered into a nearby field seeking help and was not seen again.
