Bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman has donated $10,000 as a reward for any information leading to safe return of Rose Downwind, a mother of five from Redby, Minn., missing for 10 days.
Downwind’s grandfather, American Indian Movement co-founder Dennis Banks, reached out to Chapman for help finding the 31-year-old, who has not been in contact with relatives since Oct. 19. Chapman, the former star of A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter” reality show, has agreed to assist in the search if she’s not located over the weekend.
“We are almost positive she did not run away,” Chapman said during a radio interview on “Native Trailblazers.”
Downwind was last spotted leaving a residence on Stoner Avenue in southeast Bemidji on the morning of Oct. 21, police said.
She may have gotten into a blue vehicle, but authorities are unsure of the make and model. Downwind was last seen wearing a blue sweater and black pants and is described as 5-feet-4-inches tall, 120 pounds with a light brown, clear complexion.
Anyone who may have seen Downwind is asked to call Bemidji police at 1-218-333-9111.
