The Lake County Sheriff's Office reported Tuesday night that 20-year-old Korrine Peterson was found by Idaho State Police.

(1st Report, 7:40 p.m., 2/2/2021) The Missing/Endangered Person Advisory for the Spokane woman who reported to Lake County authorities that she had been kidnapped by her boyfriend has been updated to reflect new vehicle and location information.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office reported that 20-year-old Korrine Peterson and 34-year-old John Monday are in a gray 2012 Jeep Liberty with Washington plates: BSV2265.

Their last location was determined to be on Highway 200 and possibly headed for Highway 135 South. Officials believe Peterson and Monday may be headed back to the Spokane, Washington area.

The first MEPA regarding Peterson was issued Monday evening after she called Lake County 911 to report that Monday, her boyfriend, had kidnapped her and was abusing her.

Authorities pinged Peterson's cell phone to the Polson area, but the phone was powered off preventing any further information.

Monday is described as white with brown hair and hazel eyes. He is 5’7” tall and weighs 190 pounds.
