Bannock sheriff looks for missing inmate

The Bannock County Sheriff’s Office is searching for an escaped inmate.

A warrant has been issued in Idaho and Utah for the arrest of 19-year-old Haley J. Dockstader. Sheriff Lorin Nielsen said Dockstader was part of the county’s trustee program and walked away while doing an assignment on Thursday afternoon.

Dockstader’s mother, who lives in California, said she has been communicating with her daughter over Facebook since the escape. She said her daughter wants to get back to California.

“We’re trying to encourage her to turn herself in, or at least call an attorney and see what her options are. Even though she’ll be locked up, at least she’ll be safe,” she said.

Dockstader was a student at Idaho State University. She had been in jail for the past nine months for probation violation on misdemeanor charges.
