    Massive search for missing teacher.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Cmullin says crime is almost unheard of in the Sidney, Montana, area, so people are shocked by the disappearance of Sherry Arnold. She says a lot of businesses are closed so that people can help search for her. About a thousand volunteers helped look for her on Sunday "which is amazing because our town only has about 3,000 people," Cmullin says. She doesn't know Arnold personally, but says everyone is connected in the small town. She says people are sharing the latest information about the case on the Help find Sherry Arnold Facebook page.

    There is a massive search effort underway in Sidney, Montana for a missing teacher. Over 1,000 people are scouring the town of Sidney, Montana for any signs of a missing teacher, Sherry Arnold. The 43-year-old woman has been missing since 6:30 am Saturday, when she left her house to go for a jog. On Saturday, authorities recovered her shoe in the northeast part of town.



    Sidney, Montana is a very rural area in Eastern Montana near the Bakken Oil Field. This kind of thing is unheard of, and the tiny quiet town is in a panic.


    Three canine units from the Border Patrol, Roosevelt County Sheriff's office, and Miles City, Montana Police Department are in town searching for Arnold. In addition to local law enforcement and firefighters, 40 members of the Montana National Guard are assisting officers by searching the rural areas of town. Also locals are searching with ATV's, horses and on foot. Locals also have planes in the air, along with a helicopter to help in the effort.


    Arnold is a well known math teacher and coach, and is loved by all in the small community. Locals are shocked and stunned by the disappearance, and it has brought the town to a complete stand still.


    The only sign of her has been a shoe. Nothing else. National coverage of this tragic situation may lead to answers we cannot get on our own. Please help by shedding light on this story.
