Authorities continued to look Monday for a missing Montana teacher last seen leaving her home to go running on Saturday morning. Later that day, a shoe believed to be hers was found on the side of the road near her running route, but no other sign has been found of her since then.
Hundreds of volunteers participated in the search for 43-year-old Sherry Arnold over the weekend, according to local reports. Sidney Police Assistant Chief Bob Burnison told KRTV that investigators fear “something drastic” happened to her that has prevented her from contacting anyone.
According to KTVQ, Burnison said searchers have uncovered several items, but aside from the shoe, none belonged to Arnold. Canine units and the National Guard have also been assisting with the search, KFBB reported.
An alert from the Montana Department of Justice described Arnold as 5’10”, 140 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. When she was last seen around 6:30 Saturday morning, she was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, red nylon pants, black leggings and black gloves.
A CNN iReporter who lives in Sidney wrote that crime is rare in the small rural town and the citizens are “in a panic” over the mystery.
Anyone with information about Sherry Arnold’s disappearance is asked to call the Sidney Police Department at 406-433-2210.
