Inmate Casey White, Missing Alabama Correctional Officer Vicki White

An Alabama corrections officer and a capital murder suspect are missing after the officer said he was accompanying him to a court date — one that turned out not to exist.according to Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton.

Vicki White, deputy director of corrections for the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office, and inmate Casey Cole White, who are not related, left the detention center around 9:30 a.m. Friday, bound for the courthouse, and did not have been seen ever since. Sheriff Rick Singleton said.

Singleton said Vicki White, a sheriff’s office employee for 25 years, told her subordinates that she would take Casey White for a mental health evaluation and then seek medical attention herself.

He said investigators have since learned there was no scheduled mental health evaluation or other court appearance, and the officer never sought medical attention.

Authorities found the vehicle in which they left the detention center in the parking lot of a Lauderdale County shopping center.

Vicki White was armed with a 9mm pistol, Singleton said, and Casey White should be considered armed and dangerous. Singleton said that he believes Vicki White is in danger now.
