OROFINO, Idaho — An Orofino woman believed to be with her ex-boyfriend was found safe Monday and is no longer considered missing, the Orofino Police Department says.

According to a press release by the Orofino Police Department (OPD), the 36-year-old woman, who was reported missing and at-risk on Thursday, June 2 was found safe in Grants Pass, Oregon.

The Grants Pass Police Department said in a statement that the woman was found safe on Monday with her boyfriend on her own free will.

Previous story, Thursday June 4, 2022: 

The woman was first reported missing by her father on June 2. According to the OPD, the woman's father also reported to officers his daughter's car was missing and she had not been in contact with him or her children since May 31. 

The woman's father also told officers her daughter may be with her ex-boyfriend, Jeremy Anderson from Orofino. Her father added that he was concerned for her safety.

OPD responded to a domestic abuse complaint at Chandler's home in Orofino on May 25. Deputies investigated and determined that Chandler had allegedly been assaulted by Anderson and he had left the home prior to the arrival of officers.  

Deputies issued a felony arrest warrant for Anderson, charging him with domestic battery and being a habitual offender.  According to the police statement, Anderson was on probation through Idaho Probation and Parole, and an Agent's Warrant was also issued for Anderson with nationwide extradition.

Deputies located the woman missing car at a residence near Clarkston on Monday. It was allegedly reported that the woman had left the vehicle at that house and may have left in a different vehicle with Anderson.

Police said if the woman is with Anderson, it is unclear if she is doing it by choice or against her will.
