JACKSON (WNE) — License plate reader cameras were used recently to try to locate a missing Idaho woman whose cellphone showed she had passed through Moran.

Laura Lane, 54, left her job in Buffalo, Wyoming, and began traveling back to her hometown of Nampa, Idaho, on the morning of June 2.

Sgt. Jesse Willcox of the Teton County Sheriff’s Office said that on June 5, he was notified that Lane hadn’t arrived home and that at around 1 p.m. on June 2, her phone had pinged in the area of Moran Junction.

The Jackson Police Department checked the Flock camera system to see if Lane’s license plate had been located in the Jackson area on June 2, but they were unable to find any record of her traveling through, Willcox said.

Nampa police officers told Willcox that her vehicle has been picked up on their license plate readers in the Nampa area.

Carmen Boeger, the community engagement coordinator for the Nampa Police Department, said Lane is still missing and has been entered into a national database.

“There were a couple notes about a vehicle she possibly had that did hit our license plate readers,” Boeger said. “That doesn’t necessarily mean she was the one driving.”

Lane and her vehicle are still outstanding, Boeger said. Lane was last known to be traveling in a 2013 red Dodge Dart.

Boeger said her department is seeking leads and information.
