A sheriff’s office in Alabama issued an alarm Friday night after an inmate and the assistant director of corrections disappeared earlier in the day. It is not yet clear what happened to inmates Casey Cole White and Vicki White, who are not related despite having the same last name.
The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office said Vicki White and Casey Cole White left the local jail at about 6 p.m. 9:30 on the way to the courthouse and has not been seen since. The vehicle in which they left the detention center was located in the parking lot of a shopping center, the office said.
The office did not provide further information on what could have happened, but said investigators are “currently trying to find a video that can tell us more about what we’re dealing with.”
The office said that even though they went at. 9.30, no one was aware that the two were missing before kl. 15.30. It is not clear how their disappearance went unnoticed for so long.
The office warned residents not to approach Casey Cole White, who they said was detained on charges of capital murder.
