The Missoula Police Department is currently investigating the possibility that Bozeman escapee Kevin Briggs may have been in the Missoula area this past weekend.

"We've been contacted by the Bozeman Police Department and just advise the escapee from their jurisdiction had some contacts in the Missoula area," Missoula Police Sergeant Travis Welsh said. "We are following up on those to see if there's any chance that he has in fact been here, or had contact with those people."

A University of Montana campus wide text message was also sent to warn students about the escapee.

"He is a white male, believed to be 5'5, medium build, weighs about 150 pounds, brown hair and blue eyes, and he is 28 years of age," Welsh said. "He has piercings on his face that may include a double piercing on his lower lip. He may have shaved his head, but otherwise he has short, brown hair."

Welsh advises calling 9-1-1 or the police department immediately if someone believes they have seen Briggs. Welsh also recommends not approaching or contacting him.
