    • Vicky White, assistant director of corrections for the sheriff's department, has been missing since she collected a prisoner from the detention center
    • On Friday morning at 9:30am White, armed with a 9mm handgun, collected Casey Cole White - no relation - for a supposed mental health evaluation
    • Sheriff Rick Singleton of Lauderdale County confirmed on Friday afternoon that there was not a scheduled mental health evaluation
    • Vicky White's car was found abandoned at a shopping center at 3:30pm, and the pair have not been seen since
    • Casey Cole White, 38, was facing the death penalty for the 2015 murder of Connie Ridgeway, 58, in her home in Rogersville, Alabama
    • He was arrested in December 2015 for a crime spree across Tennessee and Alabama with burglary, carjacking, shooting and a car chase
    • In June 2020, while serving a 75-year sentence, he wrote to Lauderdale County sheriffs and confessed to killing Ridgeway
    • In October 2020, Casey Cole White was brought before a judge who heard he had been caught trying to escape from jail using a makeshift knife stashed away
But on Friday afternoon, Sheriff Rick Singleton of Lauderdale County said that there was no scheduled mental health evaluation.

Vicky White's car was found abandoned at a shopping center at 3:30pm, and the pair have not been seen since.

'I am extremely, extremely concerned that he is not in custody,' said Chris Connolly, Lauderdale County district attorney - adding that the FBI is assisting with the search, in addition to state and local authorities.

'This is a very dangerous situation.'

It is unclear if White is in any danger, with investigators yet to say whether they think she colluded with White to bust him out of jail, or whether she has fallen victim to an abduction.

Authorities are now looking at all possibilities of what happened, including if the corrections officer helped Casey White escape.White got out of the vehicle with a gun and threatened to shoot officers and himself unless he could speak with Limestone Sheriff Mike Blakely.



"Whether she assisted him or not, we don't know, and we won't address that until we have absolute proof that that's what happened. We are assuming at this point that she was taken against her will, unless we can absolutely prove otherwise," Singleton added

Authorities didn't realize they were missing till several hours later.

Her vehicle, a 2013 Ford Taurus patrol car, was first spotted in a shopping center parking lot around 11 a.m. by someone who was on a lunch break, Singleton said.

Around 3:30 p.m., officers at the jail were concerned and tried to reach her, but her phone kept going straight to voicemail. They then realized Casey White had not been returned to the jail.

Vicki White has been with the department for 25 years and is eligible for retirement -- which she has talked about doing in the last few months, Singleton added.

Casey White was facing the death penalty for the October 2015 murder of Connie Ridgeway, 58, in her home in Rogersville, Alabama.

In one night, he staged a home invasion, two carjackings and multiple shootings that left a dog dead and a woman injured

The crimes were followed by a chase, where speeds reached more than 100 miles per hour, WHNT reported.

It ended with a stolen car stuck in a field south of Huntsville, and officers - who were evidently well known to him - pleading with him to put down his gun and give himself u
p.

White got out of the vehicle with a gun and threatened to shoot officers and himself unless he could speak with Limestone Sheriff Mike Blakely.

Body-cam footage shows deputies attempting to get White to surrender by offering him smokeless tobacco and Sun Drop citrus soda while they waited for Blakely to arrive.


Casey White was found guilty of a total of nine charges, including trying to kill his ex-girlfriend and kidnapping her two roommates. Other charges included first degree robbery, first degree burglary, third degree burglary, breaking and entering a vehicle, animal cruelty for shooting a dog and attempting to elude.

He was sentenced in April 2019 to 75 years in prison.

In June 2020, he wrote to Lauderdale County requesting a meeting with the sheriffs office, and confessed to killing Ridgeway - providing a detailed description of the crime scene.

He said he was paid to kill her, although no motive for hiring a hitman has ever been disclosed.
