Sherry Arnold, a 43-year-old mother of 3 from Sidney, Montana was reported missing Saturday morning when she did not return home after a 6:30 a.m. morning jog. A few hours after Arnold left for her morning run, her husband knew something was wrong and alerted police.
After a search was conducted, a single running shoe was found in a ditch along the route that Sherry Arnold normally ran. After checking, they confirmed that the running shoe was Sherry's.
Asst. Police Chief Robert Burnison said that a witness has come forward stating that they saw someone that looks like Arnold running along the truck route that Saturday morning and that they believe that person to be Arnold.
The FBI has joined the search and are considering all possibilities in this disappearance. One angle that they are considering very possible is that Arnold was abducted and taken 100 miles up through South Dakota and across the Canada border. If it were determined that Arnold were taken across the Canadian border, this disappearance would then be considered a federal case.
Sherry Arnold is a well-liked and beloved algebra/math teacher that has taught at the local high school for over 18 years. The school superintendent, Daniel Farr has said that "She's one of those teachers that every parent wants in front of their child. She's there early in the mornings and she's there after school. She is just a generous and caring person”.
The disappearance has been met with overwhelming community support, so much support that it has surprised Richland County officials because of the large numbers of people showing up to offer help or donate in some way. Hundreds of people showed up to help from Sidney, Montana which has a population of around 5000.
Sherry Arnold is 5'10" tall with black hair and brown eyes. She has a slender build and weighs approximately 140 pounds. She was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with white stripes on the sleeves, black leggings with red nylon pants and a pair of black gloves.
