Authorities provide updates on the search for incarcerated Casey Cole White, correctional officer Vicky White

Authorities in Alabama is expected to hold a press conference Monday morning about the disappearance of the suspected killer Casey Cole White and corrections official Vicky White, who investigators say are unrelated. The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office has scheduled a news conference at 7 p.m. 10.30 local time.

Casey White, 38, had been jailed on a charge of murder at the Lauderdale County Detention Center in Florence, Alabama, about 75 miles west of Huntsville. Inmate and Assistant Director of Corrections Vicky White, 56, left the jail Friday morning to go to a nearby courthouse, the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post Saturday.

At a news conference Friday, Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said Vicky White was armed when she left prison with Casey White and went to the courthouse for what she said was a mental health evaluation for the inmate. She was alone with him, which according to the sheriff violated the department’s policy.

Singleton also said there was no mental health evaluation for the inmate scheduled at the courthouse.

The vehicle in which the officer and the inmate were when they left the detention center was found in the parking lot of a nearby mall, according to the sheriff’s office.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Sunday it is offering up to $ 10,000 for information leading authorities to find the two.
