Missing Children Found

(Gallatin County, Mont) On Monday, Aug 3, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, Amsterdam Fire Department, Manhattan Police Department, and a Lifeflight helicopter responded to a search for two missing children. A six-year-old girl, her four-year-old brother, and their kitten were playing in a field next to their house in the Churchill area. They decided to go off on an “adventure” and walked away from their house. When their mother noticed they were missing a few minutes later, she and other family members began searching and called law enforcement for help.

Searchers responded with a helicopter, a drone, search dogs, and numerous ground crews. A little less than an hour after law enforcement was notified, the children and the kitten were located safe. They had travelled a little less than a mile to another neighborhood, where they were located in a garage.

Sheriff Gootkin would like to remind everyone to immediately notify law enforcement when vulnerable people such as children, the disabled, and the elderly with dementia, go missing. The sooner searchers are involved, the better the outcome.
