The missing person’s poster, shared by The Aware Foundation, says Berry was reported missing on December 31, 2021, at about 6:40 a.m. to the Richland County Sheriff’s Office.
That office “received a report of a missing 26-year-old female by the name of Katelynn Berry. Berry was last seen on December 21, 2021, at her residence south of Sidney, MT near County Roads 122 and 349R. Attempts to contact Berry on her cell phone have been unsuccessful and she does not have a vehicle. Berry is known to walk to Town Pump, which is near her residence,” a Facebook post by the group says.
“Law enforcement found that according to cell phone records the last known location of her phone was at her residence on December 29, 2021. The phone was later found in her residence. Berry is known in the past to walk away from her residence, so there is a concern for her well-being due to weather conditions. Anyone with knowledge of Berry’s whereabouts is asked to contact their local law enforcement officers, the Richland County Sheriff’s Office at 406-433-2919, or the Sidney Police Department at 406-433-2210.”
In a radio interview with Williston Trending Topics News Radio Live, Loved ones said that they loved Berry very much and are seeking tips.
Her mother said that law enforcement was doing everything they could. She praised the Richland County Sheriff’s Department and said they searched for her daughter in brutally cold weather.
Right now, authorities are not seeking civilian help. She asked people to keep their eyes open.
Mattison confirmed that the cold weather was hindering search efforts. She confirmed that Berry liked to walk a lot. If she left her house, they’re hoping something didn’t happen to her on a walk.
Berry has ties to Grand Forks, her mother said. She grew up there and attended school there through her high school years.
Family members said authorities pinged her cell phone and found it in her apartment with her wallet and money. All of her personal belongings, including her coat, were there, but Berry was missing.
They searched the apartment, the field behind it, and so on, with no luck.
Richland County Sheriff John Dynneson said in a radio interview with Williston Trending Topics News Radio Live that authorities had nothing new to report. He said there was a “significant amount” of information about the case on social media, and the state’s Department of Justice is involved.
Between midnight and 8:30 a.m. is when Berry might have gone missing. She had contact with individuals on December 23 and 24. There was a text message sent out from her phone, the sheriff said. He said he wasn’t sure if it was by her or someone else.
Authorities had contact with the last person she texted and are reaching out to other people she may have had contact with before December 23.
The text went out sometime after midnight on December 30, 2021, and then the activity ended, the show revealed.
The sheriff revealed there had been searched by helicopter and foot, and authorities are considering it both a criminal investigation and just a search for a missing person. If it becomes illegal, they don’t want to have missed anything.
The sheriff acknowledged it’s possibly Berry just walked away, but he said Berry would probably have reached out to her parents so they wouldn’t be going through so much turmoil, saying she is from a “loving and caring family.”
He noted that she is on medication that she needs to take and doesn’t have a car.
