The FBI is searching for an Iowa woman who was last seen in September

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — Sioux City Community Police Sergeant Thomas Gill told KCAU 9 that the FBI has become involved in the search for Brenda Payer.

Missing and Murdered Native Women in the USA said Brenda Payer, 36, of Sioux City, was last seen leaving a relative’s vehicle at a McDonald’s on Hamilton Boulevard and reported missing on September 29 according to Sergeant Jeremy McClure.

The search was assigned to the investigative division of the Sioux City Police Department, and about two dozen people participated in the the public hearing that was held on October 7.

According to Gill, the FBI’s involvement in the search will facilitate communication between states and reserves.

The Sioux City Police Department reported Payer to the National Crime Information Center as a missing and endangered person. This means that if any law enforcement agency in America comes into contact with her, they will be notified and able to provide assistance.

Indians attorney Terry Medina said Payer’s relatives are heartbroken as they continue their search with the ultimate goal of bringing her home.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sioux City Police Department at 712-279-6960.

KCAU 9 reached out to the Omaha FBI office for more information, but had not heard back by press time.
