How a retroactive law affects a statute of limitation that has not expired? Posted on May 01, 2011

A person commits a crime in 2006 in Missouri that has a 3 year statute of limitation. After the crime was committed the person moved to another state. The crime was discovered by law the same day the crime was committed. No complaint or indictment has ever been filed against this person. As of 2011, if the person was to come back to the state would their crime still be under the 3 year statute of limitation or the new 10 year statute of limitation?
