Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Chingliak was last seen in Goodnews Bay, Alaska on September 7, 2012. She and her two brothers-in-law, Rick Ross and Sam Pavala, were bringing donated food from the Platinum fish processing plant twelve miles to their villAge at the time of disappearance: , in a flat-bottomed 20-foot boat with an inboard V-8 motor, when the boat sank in the bay.
One of the men called for help on a cellular phone as the boat was going down and a search was launched. Rescuers found Ross and Pavala's bodies in the water, but were unable to locate Chingliak.
The vessel was probably not overloaded, but it was designed for river travel, not ocean travel, and had low sides. There was a strong west wind that day, and this combined with the outgoing tide may have created rough water in the bay and swamped the boat. It was later found sunk in ten feet of water about four miles from Platinum.
Chingliak's body has never been found, but she is presumed drowned.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 25% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
