Status: Still Missing
39 year old Shanna Oman was last seen leaving a residence off McGrath road in Fairbanks, Alaska at 12:30 am on June 2, 2019.
Shanna is from Eagle River, but was visiting a friend in Fairbanks at the time of her disappearance. Her friend that she was visiting was supposed to give her a ride back to Eagle River, but when he didn’t hear from her he assumed she had made other arrangements to get back home.
After learning from her roommate that she never returned home, her friend reported her missing. On June 9th the Alaska State Troopers (AST) began investigating her disappearance.
According to AST, Shanna was at a cabin near mile 23 of Chena Hot Springs Road before she went missing, but according to the owner of the cabin Shanna “walked away” on June 4th. The owner of the cabin cooperated with AST, and multiple searches have been done of the cabin and surrounding property that borders the Chena River. No clues as to her whereabouts have been found.
The last ping on her cell phone was on June 4th near the area of mile 17 on Chena Hot Springs Road. AST Helo-2 searched that area, as well as PAWS Search & Rescue Dogs, but no signs of Shanna were found.
The circumstances of Shanna’s disappearance remain unclear, and her case is classified as endangered missing.
Shanna was born on November 7, 1979, and was 39 years old when she went missing. She stands 5’7 tall, weighs 120 pounds, and has blonde hair and blue eyes.
She was last known to be wearing a long shirt and either shorts or underwear. Further details about her direction of travel and clothing are unknown.
