(January 9, 2019) A Missing/Endangered Persons Advisory requested by the Helena Police Department for two children is still in effect.

The Advisory was issued Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. for Alex and Kristl Kaufman, who were with their mother, Shala Hood.

Alex is a 1 year and 8 month old white male with blonde hair and blue eyes. He is 3-foot-6 and 35 pounds. Kristl is a 7-month-old white female with blonde hair. She is 2-foot-6 and weighs 30 pounds.

Shala is a 30-year-old white female with brown hair and green eyes. She is 5-foot-2 and weighs 155 pounds.

The Court ordered the children’s removal from their mother’s custody for reasons that the children are in immediate or apparent danger without Child Protective Services intervention.

The children were last seen by CPS on December 22, 2018. There is an unknown direction of travel, but they may be headed to the Great Falls area.

There is currently no known mode of transportation.
