Twenty-nine-year-old Shannon Hokanson hasn't been seen since May, but she was only just reported missing by family members after about two months of being gone without contact. This makes it extremely difficult to speculate on the woman's whereabouts, or whether or not she's even aliveÂ—but the length of time in her disappearance is unsettling, nonetheless. What happened to this missing mother of three?
Shannon Baldwin Hokanson is 5'2" and about 150 lbs., with long brown hair and brown eyes. She reportedly has several tattoos, but there are no available photos or descriptions of the tattoos on her body. Her family claims that being gone this long without contact is out of her character, and the she normally at least calls once a week.
What should be questioned is what kind of lifestyle does the missing woman lead? It's said that she's the mother of three children, but does she have custody of these children or someone else in the family? Is she ever involved in dramatic relationships or is she the possible victim of domestic violence?
Until more information comes out in this case, it's hard to tell what may have happened to Shannon Hokanson, but after two months of being gone, there's just no telling when more information may come to the media. It's a shame that so much time has passed without this case being reported, and even more upsetting that it's taken so long for the story to even make it to the news. Here's to hoping she's alive somewhere, but hopefully the family will get closure soon if she's not.
