Authorities believe 60-year-old Rodney Zahn, a violent, registered offender violating his probation, took 16-year-old Sandy Moore from her Sheridan, MT home during the night. According to the Amber Alert, Moore is mentally delayed.

Moore's WIC card was reportedly used in Dubois at 9:45 a.m. Thursday. Zahn may be taking her to Billings, Mont.

Moore was last seen wearing a white shirt with black short sleeves and jeans. Zahn is a white male, 5'7" tall, weighing 135 pounds with brown eyes and grey and brown short hair. He reportedly has a Tasmanian Devil tattooed on one of his arms and a tattoo of a cross on his left hand.

Authorities believe Zahn has Moore in a black 1987 Ford pickup with Montana license plate 3-50558B. A white toolbox and green bicycle are believed to be in the bed of the truck, which is towing a white fifth-wheel trailer with a red generator and blue cover on the back of the trailer.
