COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Randolph County Sheriff's Department continues to search for an inmate after she used another inmate's identity to escape the jail Saturday.
On Saturday morning, 24-year-old Ellen Renay Goble was held on five charges at the Randolph County Jail when she used the other inmate's personal information to escape.
The jail was unaware Goble escaped until other inmates told the staff that Goble was pretending to be someone else.
The jail staff then went back to do a second check and verified that Goble was not supposed to be released.
Sheriff Aaron Wilson has now put a team together to investigate the escape further and attempt to find Goble.
The Randolph County Sheriff's Office also said they are reviewing current policies and controls for the jail and meeting with people to put new ones in place to avoid future problems like this from happening.
Goble is described as being 5'3" and weighs 110 to120 lbs. with brown hair and eyes.
Goble is a Randolph County resident and is believed to still be in the area. The Randolph County Sheriff's Office asks the public if they have any information on Goble to contact the Randolph County sheriff's office at 660-263-0346.
The Sheriff's Office says they do not believe Goble is a threat to the public and does not have a violent history but ask that extreme caution be used.
