Springfield Police are investigating a possible abduction and missing and endangered person.
KOLR 24-year-old Savannah Barton – also known as Aurentz – was last known to be at an Economy Inn at 9 a.m. Sunday and three people have been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping.
Police say Barton may have been taken by force by two males and a female. KOLR reports that those three subjects were later located by police at a Flagship Inn in Springfield.
Barton was not located and is believed to be in danger. According to KOLR, police don’t think the alleged kidnapping was a crime and think she knows her suspected abductors.

Barton is 5’6″ and weighs 140 pounds. She had recently dyed her hair red and has blue eyes. Barton was last seen wearing a pink sweatshirt, jeans, and a green hat.
Anyone with information regarding Barton’s whereabouts is asked to call 911.
