Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Reminds Citizens To Be Vigilant

Montgomery County, KS -

6/9/17:  Yesterday in a press release we asked citizens to be on the lookout for a white Chevrolet Colorado due to a possible abduction. Today we will be able to shed a little more light on the situation. 
Yesterday morning at about 8:30 AM, Montgomery County Sheriff Dispatched received a call from a concerned citizen who was out in the area of CR2800 and CR3300 when he spotted a white Chevrolet Colorado, with a black Chevrolet 2500 following. The man observed a female in the front passenger seat of the truck that appeared to be bound at the hands and had a gag over her mouth. The female was described as approximately 30 years of age and appeared to have grey hair.
All available Sheriff’s Officers including the Sheriff Dierks went to the area and began searching all across the county for the vehicles described by the citizen. After a widespread search of the county The Sheriff asked for the information be made available to the public to see if anyone had any further information.
As of 06/09/2017 no further information has been obtained. We have no reports of missing persons in or around the area and the vehicles have not been seen since the initial sighting yesterday morning. Sheriff Dierks would like everyone to know we are taking this call very seriously, but up to this point we have no new leads or any indication that a crime has been committed. Sheriff Dierks would remind everyone to stay vigilant, but at this time there is no information or reason to believe that there is a specific threat to the community. “Kidnapping is a very serious crime and I dedicated resources to investigate the claims” “At this time I have no reason to believe there is any danger to the public and if that changes I will get that information out as quickly as possible.” Dierks said. No further updates will be provided until such time as the situation or information changes.
