Missing Montana schoolteacher found dead

Montana schoolteacher Sherry Arnold, missing since Saturday, has been found dead, according to a posting on the Sidney Public Schools website.

The school district provided no other information.

Law enforcement officers have taken "one adult male into custody, and another adult male is being questioned" in relation to Arnold's case, the FBI said Friday in a statement.

The 43-year-old schoolteacher was last seen out on a morning jog through her small town.

One of her running shoes was found along her route, but authorities indicated there had not been any other sign of Arnold.

Sidney police Chief Frank DiFonzo said earlier this week that teams had been using dogs and aircraft to search for Arnold and have gotten help from National Guard members as well as volunteers.

On Thursday, the FBI put out a poster of Arnold and added her to its "kidnapping and missing persons" website.

Arnold's disappearance has hit the small community hard, including at Sidney High School, where she is a math teacher. Situated near North Dakota and about 100 miles south of the Canadian border, Sidney has a population of just under 5,200 people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

    she is a human being first and foremost-there are alot of sick people out there that kill just because they are angry, depressed, drugged out, alcohol dependent, mentally unstable-etc–no regard for human life whatsoever! this happens way way to often these days–but i feel we cannot be afraid to live our lives-not go out because someone might hurt us–we should be aware of our surroundings at all times, be vigilant, but live our lives not cower in fear–and we deserve the right to have protection–whether it be a bat, a stick, a gun, pepperspray whatever-take it with you people!!!! but the worst thing we can do is live in fear all the time!!!! i am sad for this woman, her family, her friends–i hope they catch whoever did this!!!! but he/she would be only one of the many people out there that do this type of thing.

      Remains a puzzle why so many are thrilled to have a son and then raise them to do these things to girls and women.

    Someone needs to change this headline – there is "no" confirmation anywhere that this woman's body has yet been found! So why is it still so stated here? Makes CNN look VERY BAD.

    This is old, and incorrect news! CNN should take this off. It was reported after that time that she was NOT found. They are still looking for her body as of today, Feb. 11 2012! CNN indiscrimantely has news blurbs that are frequently out of date and old.
