The Payette County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating an inmate who has been missing since August 12th.

Ryan Paul Henry, 30, was attending a funeral in Vale, Oregon when he disappeared. He had been given a furlough to attend the funeral.

According to Payette County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Toby Hauntz, Henry was scheduled to return to the Jail by 4 p.m. that day, but never did.

He had been incarcerated on a narcotics-related probation violation.

Hauntz says Henry will likely be charged with escape.

If you know of Henry’s whereabouts, you are urged to call 9-1-1 or the Payette County Sheriff’s Office at 208-642-6006 extension 1175.
