HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Law enforcement officers in eastern Montana say two men being questioned in the disappearance of a high school math teacher are being held in the Dakotas.

Sidney Public School officials posted a statement online saying they learned of Sherry Arnold's death Friday morning. She went missing on Jan. 7 while on a morning run.

Sidney police Chief Frank DiFonzo said Friday a 47-year-old man is in custody in the Williams County jail in North Dakota while a 22-year-old man is being questioned in Rapid City, S.D. He did not identify them and declined to answer any questions about the investigation.

FBI Special Agent in Charge David J. Johnson, of Salt Lake City, said a tip from the public led to the two men.
