Dakotah Jayde Abramowski

CLOQUET, Minn. -- Missing Cloquet man Dakotah Jayde Abramowski has been found, his mother Renee Abramowski confirmed Saturday, March 30.

Dakotah Abramowski was reported missing by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on Feb. 19, but was last seen in Cloquet on Jan. 5.

Although his mother did not confirm if Dakotah Abramowski was found dead or alive, the Gitchigumi Scouts from the Fond du Lac reseervation posted on Facebook Saturday saying Dakotah Abramowski was found dead. The group searches for missing and murdered indigenous people in the Northland and on the reservation. His sister, Tiffany Abramowski, shared the post by the Gitchigumi Scouts as well as a picture of her brother with angel wings.

On Friday, Cloquet police said a body was discovered on the 700 block of Poplar Avenue around 2 p.m. in the snow in a semi-wooded backyard. The male was pronounced dead at the scene, a news release said. Cloquet police did not identify the deceased male as of deadline Saturday.

Dakotah Abramowski’s 21st birthday was Feb. 26.

His mother told the Pine Journal last week that Dakotah Abramowski left with friends Jan. 5 and came back home late that night. She said she suspected he was high on drugs when he came back. Later that night Renee Abramowski said she heard him talking to people in the hallway of the apartment building where they live and then he abruptly left. She hadn’t heard from him since.

The Cloquet and Fond du Lac police departments conducted searches of several areas of interest on foot and with snowmobiles in February. The most recent search was conducted on Monday in Cloquet by Gitchigumi Scouts from Fond du Lac.
