HELENA — A Missing Endangered Person Advisory (MEPA) has been issued for a 20-year-old Spokane woman who reported to Lake County authorities Monday that she had been kidnapped by her boyfriend.

The alert states Korrine Marie Peterson called Lake County 911 to report her boyfriend, 34-year-old John James Monday, had taken her against her will and was abusing her.

Authorities pinged Peterson's cell phone to the Polson area, but the phone was powered off preventing any further information.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell said on Monday that at the time of the call, it was believed they were in a remote area of western Lake County, possibly the Irvine Flats area.

Officials were unable to locate the pair on Monday.

Peterson is Native American with brown hair and hazel eyes. She is 5’6” tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds.

Monday is described as white with brown hair and hazel eyes. He is 5’7” tall and weighs 190 pounds.

They are possibly traveling in a red two-door sedan with either Washington or Idaho plates.

Anyone with information about Korrine Peterson is asked to call 911 or the Lake County Sheriff's Office at (406) 883-7301.
