Delema disappeared from Pine Ridge, South Dakota on February 20, 1974.

Temperatures were below zero at the time.

Delema's friend turned back after her hands and feet got frostbitten, but Delema continued towards Manderson. She never arrived at her destination and has never been heard from again. She was a student at the Seventh Day Adventist School between Ogallala and Pine Ridge at the time of her disappearance.
