HELENA - A mother of two who was reported missing in December then found in California made her initial appearance in District Court on Wednesday morning.
Angelica Melody Gray was in court after being brought back by law enforcement from California last week. The 22-year old mother of two is in jail on violations of her probation for leaving the state without permission.
Gray was previously given a deferred sentence for two counts of felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs. One of those was for psilocybin mushrooms. The other was for marijuana.
In the petition to revoke, Gray could face up to five years in prison for each count.
The county attorney's office is still deciding what charges to file against Gray for leaving her children alone at the YWCA in December when she was reported missing. Her disappearance sparked a large search by several law enforcement agencies.
Gray remains in jail on a $50,000 bond.
