A movement to draw attention to Native American women and girls who have been killed or reported missing is expanding in some areas to include males.

Margaret Bitsue's son is among them. The Navajo woman hasn't seen or heard from her youngest child in more than four years. She says a recent forum on the Navajo Nation that centered on males gives her hope that she's not alone in her search for answers.

Late last year, the Trump administration announced it would dedicate more resources to all missing and slain Native Americans and Alaska Natives.
