KRTV describes the criteria for a Missing and Endangered Persons Advisory, which is separate from an AMBER alert.

“Is the person missing under unexplained, involuntary or suspicious circumstances?”

“Is the person believed to be in danger because of age, health, mental or physical disability, or environmental or weather conditions; to be in the company of a potentially dangerous person; or is there some other factor that may put the person in peril?”

“Is there information that could assist the public in the safe recovery of the missing person?”

The missing male teens fit the criteria for the MEPA. Anyone who sees the teens or has any information as to their location is asked to please call Butte Silver Bow Law Enforcement at 406-497-1130 or 911.
