UPDATE: BUTTE - Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester says that the two-year-old child who was earlier reported as missing and possibly endangered -- Legend Ryan White -- has been located.

Legend was found by Butte Police just after midnight and is safe. No other information is being released at this time.


The Montana Department of Justice has issued a Missing/Endangered Person Advisory for 2-year-old Legend White.

Legend was given to Julie Gardiner, an acquaintance of the child’s father.

There has been no contact with Julie or Legend since then, and there is reason to believe Julie is under the influence of drugs, according the Butte-Silver Bow Police Department.

If you have any information about the child or the suspect, call Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement at 406-497-1130, or call 911.
