Police seek inmate, jail staff noticed days later he escaped

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia troopers are searching for a jail inmate who was not discovered missing until nearly two days after he escaped.

State police First Sgt. J.T. Findley tells news outlets that 43-year-old Todd Boyes, of Caldwell, Ohio, escaped on Wednesday around 5 a.m. South Central Regional Jail staff noticed Boyes was gone on Friday around 12:30 a.m.

Boyes was scheduled to be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison on charges including fleeing and possession of a stolen car on Friday morning. Boyes was initially charged with attempted murder after Charleston police Cpl. Renee Smith was hurt during a pursuit to arrest him, but the charge was dropped in a September plea deal.

Troopers say the search isn't concentrated on a specific area, and they don't have solid leads.
