HELENA – The two Helena children mentioned in a Missing and Endangered Persons Advisory last week were located in Helena on Sunday, according to a Facebook post from the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
Around 5 p.m. officers responded to a call from the 2000 block of Prospect Avenue. Alex Gray Kaufman, 20-months-old, and 7-month-old Kristl Kaufman were located inside of a vehicle.
The Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office wrote that a 30-year-old Helena resident– Shala Lynece Hood– was arrested following the incident on an outstanding felony warrant for custodial interference, along with fellow Helena resident Lonny Kaufman, who is charged with felony obstruction of justice and an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. Both were escorted to the Lewis and Clark County Jail.
