BURLEY, Idaho -- Cassia County sheriff's detectives are still searching for two employees who were reported missing from the Alpine Garden Inn in Burley on May 4.
A felony warrant for grand theft with a $250,000 bond has been issued out of Cassia County for James Duane Ambrose, 55. He is suspected of stealing a vehicle from the motel. He was last seen in the Las Vegas area a couple of weeks ago.
Russ Taft, 54, is also missing. According to a press release issued by Kidd's office, "it is feared that he may be the victim of a violent act."
"We are still investigating that so I can't go into detail," Kidd said. "But some of the evidence leads us to believe that."
According to the press release, several search warrants have been served and several searches conducted during the attempt to locate the two men.
Anyone with information on either man should contact the Cassia County Sheriff's Office at 878-2252 or Crime Stoppers at 678-2900.
