Amber Alert Issued For Two-Year-Old Montana Boy, Found Thursday Morning
An Amber Alert had been issued in Missoula, Pondera, Flathead, Glacier and Toole Counties for a two-year old Native American boy by the name of Ryder Whitford, and he was found Thursday, August 13.
Ryder was taken from his home at 8:45 Wednesday night, August 12, by his non-custodial mother Murlaina Thomas.
Ryder is described as 3'2" tall, weighing 30 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
The mother is 5'4", 140 pounds with green eyes and brown hair.
The child is believed to be in danger as the mother and two other women with her were believed to be under the influence of drugs when they took the boy. The group left in a white, four door sedan of unknown make and model.
