(UPDATE, 5 pm) The man that was originally thought to be with Hannah has been located and is no longer a person of interest.

(1st REPORT) The Montana Department of Justice has issued a Missing-Endangered Person Advisory for 17-year-old Hannah Dashnaw-Wisherd. The advisory was issued at the request of the Missoula County Sheriff's Office.

Hannah is 5'2" tall and weighs 110 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

Hannah was dropped off near Missoula Children’s Theater to get the bus to work, according to the advisory. She did not come back on the bus that evening and when they checked she had not gone to work. Hannah has possibly been attempting to date an older man, 43-year-old Jeremy Peterson, who is 6'3" tall and weighs 230 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.

It is believed she may have gone with him in his van. Jeremy is homeless and lives in his van, a white 2001 Ford Windstar with Montana plate 7-84966C. There is concern for Hannah’s safety and well-being. It is believed they are still in the Missoula area.

Anyone with information on the location of Hannah Dashnaw-Wisherd or Jeremy Peterson is asked to contact the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office at 406-258-4810 or call 911.
