Last updated 5/7/2024 at 9am

A deputy with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was conducting routine patrol in the area of Forest Road 4606 near Sisters on May 5 when the deputy discovered a camp believed to be occupied by a Leah Marie Sharp, a 37-year-old transient who was wanted for three counts of custodial interference and three counts of kidnapping out of Caldwell, Idaho.

According to DCSO, the deputy learned that Sharp was likely with her three children, the victims of the custodial interference and kidnapping, listed as missing and endangered.

While the deputy maintained constant surveillance on the camp, several other deputies converged on the scene, contacted Sharp, and took her into custody without incident. The three minor children were located in the custody of Sharp at the camp. They appeared to be unharmed.

Department of Human Services, Child Welfare Division, responded and took custody of the missing children and made arrangements for transport back to Idaho.

Sharp was transported to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Adult Jail and lodged on an out-of state-warrant for Custodial Interference in the First Degree (three counts), Kidnapping in the First Degree (three counts).
