The Great Falls Police Department is still actively investigating Brook-Lyn ArrowTopKnot’s disappearance, which is being treated as a kidnapping.

Shortly after the assault, a man was seen leaving the area while assaulting a female; the female has since been identified as Brook-Lyn Arrowtopknot. The GFPD issued an “attempt to locate” on Arrowtopknot a short time later.

The GFPD said that they have identified Guadalupe Pablo Galicia, Sr., as a person of interest in the case, and have issued a nationwide arrest for him. Galicia has convictions for aggravated assault and robbery. The GFPD said he should be considered armed and dangerous and officers are working with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.
