Three Beltrami County citizens were recently recognized in their efforts to assist the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office in locating two missing persons from the area.

In August 2017, MAKENNA Carlson, age 17 of Bemidji, was traveling on TH 371, south of Cass Lake when she observed an elderly female standing on the side of the road. As MAKENNA drove by she noticed that this person was not dressed appropriately for the rainy weather, appearing confused and cold.

MAKENNA was aware that the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office and other area law enforcement agencies were actively involved in a search in Frohn Township area for an elderly person with dementia that had wandered away from her home and caregiver during the early morning hours. MAKENNA returned to this person and rendered aid until law enforcement and ambulance personnel arrived on scene. The elderly woman was found more than 5 miles away from her home.

For her efforts MAKENNA was awarded the Sheriff’s Citizen Certificate of Recognition.

In September 2018, Jordan Jones, age 30, of Pennington and George Fineday Jr, age 52 of Pennington assisted the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office and other area law enforcement agencies in their search of 31 year old missing person from the Pennington area. Jones and Fineday became aware of their neighbor being reported missing and began searching areas that had not yet been searched by search teams. They located the 31 year old miles away from where he was originally reported missing, suffering from dehydration and hypothermia. They rendered aid until law enforcement and ambulance personnel could arrive.

For their efforts, Jordan Jones and George Fineday were awarded the Sheriff’s Citizen Certificate of Recognition.
