|The last known image of Elaine Smallcanyon before she vanished on December 15th, 2015.|
20 year-old Elaine Smallcanyon uploaded this selfie to her Facebook page the previous day. She also wrote in a post, “Heading back to Kaibito so anyone wanna text or message feel like messaging lol.” This was her final Facebook post. Kaibito is a remote area that belongs to the Navajo Nation, located in Arizona. According to the initial reports on Elaine’s disappearance, she was last seen in Page, Arizona—which is located roughly 40 minutes away from Kaibito. She was reportedly seen with 3 unidentified people at that time. Those individuals remain unidentified today.
Elaine’s missing persons report also states that the group she was with might have traveled to the Black Mesa area, or to Phoenix. Black Mesa and Phoenix are approximately 3 hours apart, and both are located hours away from Page as well. It is unclear if there is a specific link between Elaine and those places. Other than those vague details, there is very little information out there about Elaine’s disappearance.
The Page, Arizona police department is tasked with investigating Elaine’s disappearance. If you have any information that could lead to her whereabouts, please contact them at 928-645-2461.
