Inmate escapes from jail, search underway
NEZ PERCE, ID —
Lewis County Sheriff’s officials say Derek Bost, 54, has escaped from the county jail.
Bost was last seen wearing an orange jumpsuit.
He’s possibly in a grey and black 1999 Jeep Cherokee with Idaho license plates: I-54046.
Officials have released his booking photo but say he’s gained about 40 pounds since it was taken.
They’re also warning the public not to pick up any hitchhikers, do not open doors to strangers, and to call 911 if he is spotted.
More details as they become available.
