UPDATE: IFPD releases name of woman who reportedly fell in river

UPDATE 5:10 p.m.: Idaho Falls Police have released the name and a photo of the 23-year-old woman who reportedly fell into the river on May 9.

Officials said the woman is Kayla Davis of Pocatello.

The man who reported the incident was 23-year-old Walker Thomas also of Pocatello. Davis and Thomas were married earlier this year and recently relocated to Idaho Falls.

Davis is approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall, has blonde hair, green eyes and sometimes wears glasses.

Detectives are asking anyone who may have seen the couple at the river that night, or if anyone has seen the woman since, to please contact police immediately at (208) 529-1200.


The search for a missing 23-year-old female continued over the weekend and is still in progress Monday.

Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue, Idaho Falls Police Department, Idaho Falls Fire Department, Idaho Falls Power and the Bingham County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue volunteers assisted the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office with the search on the Snake River over the past 12 days.

Boats and watercraft have been on the water using sonar and various search equipment as well as aircraft every day since the report was made on Wednesday, May 9.

Extra resources will be deployed to the search area Monday in advance of an anticipated increase in water levels through the Idaho Falls area that starts Tuesday.

At this time, officials do not recommend you swim or boat in the Snake River under these conditions. If you choose to recreate on the water under these conditions, officials stress that you take extra care and precautions that come with high water conditions.

If anyone sees anything relating to this search or dangerous activity on or around the water, contact dispatch to request a deputy or officer at 208-529-1200.
