IDAHO FALL – MPs say a local man who has been missing for weeks has returned home and is safe.

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office announced in a press release on Friday that Sterling Johnson of Idaho Falls had returned home from the state.

“I was at a meeting at work where my son was missing.” “After we talked to him and found out where he was, we were blessed to bring him home.”

Johnson took a bus home from Spokane, Washington.

It was last seen on October 30 at Idaho Falls. Deputies were worried about her well-being because the dress she was wearing was not warm enough. He was later spotted in Butte, Montana.

“The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all those who provided tips and information about the case,” BCSO spokesman Sgt said. said Bryan Lovell.


IDAHO FALLS – Deputies continue to search for a missing Idaho Falls man for the last time in Montana.

Bryan Lovell, a spokesman for the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office, said in a press release that 32-year-old Sterling Johnson was taking a bus from Idaho Falls on October 30 to Butte, Montana. Authorities were concerned about Johnson’s well-being. Before this information surfaced, it was last seen at Idaho Falls in clothing that wasn’t warm enough for the cold weather. He wore only gray pants and a dark-colored sweater and had no medication for his health.

Lovell said someone spotted Johnson in a Butt rescue operation. He was wearing a denim jacket and bib overalls, buying a bus ticket. He apparently planned to travel to Portland, Oregon, but travel restrictions prevented his use. The last time anyone saw Johnson in Montana was on November 6th.

RELATED Authorities continue to search for the missing man

Lovell said MPs aren’t sure if Johnson is still in Montana, whether they’ve found another way to get to Oregon, or if he’s going back to Idaho Falls.

“At the moment, Mr Johnson’s whereabouts and well-being are still unknown, and MPs have disseminated the information to law enforcement in the region,” Lovell said. “Johnson suffers from medical and mental health problems that require medication and believes he has no resources to maintain the normal treatment process, which carries a serious medical risk.”
