Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman announced that Sherri Frost, the subject of an Endangered and Missing Persons notification earlier today, has been returned and is safe.

Ravalli County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an early morning report that Sherri had been taken against her will from a friend’s house in the Hamilton area. Investigation of the incident indicated that the suspect was Sherri’s estranged husband 49-year-old Kevin Roy Frost.

“The Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of Two Bear Air from Kalispell searched locations on the east side of the Bitterroot Valley but were unable to locate Kevin or Sherri,” Hoffman said. “In the early afternoon Kevin Frost turned himself into the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office. I can tell you that Sherri Frost is being treated medically but appears to have no life threatening injuries.”

Hoffman said Frost is in custody.

“The investigation is on-going at this time and Kevin Frost has been booked into the Ravalli County Detention Center for the offenses of felony Aggravated Kidnapping and misdemeanor Partner or Family Member Assault,” he said. “Kevin Frost is expected to be seen in Justice Court on Thursday afternoon, more details on this incident will be available at that time.”
