[image-1]A female Idaho inmate went missing for a brief time in the Boise area, but was recaptured in the late-night hours of Saturday, April 18.

Officials with the Idaho Department of Correction reported that Delaine Kreeger, 42, walked away from the East Boise Women's Community Reentry Center. Kreeger's record includes felony convictions for grand theft and possession of a controlled substance. Her sentence was scheduled to have been completed in 2020, but she was scheduled to be eligible for parole in February 2016.

The East Boise Community Reentry Center is located on Old Penitentiary Road and houses minimum-security offenders so they can hold jobs, perform community service and attend treatment programs.

Krreeger was reported to have been captured at 11:10 p.m. April 18.

The Idaho State Journal reports that the incident occurred April 17 in a Pocatello courtroom. That's where 49-year-old Darin Lish, charged with drug possession and driving without privileges, said he needed a drink of water. Instead, court officials said they saw Lish leave the building and start running.

Lish now faces an additional charge of failure to appear.
