Original Story:  Shawnta LaRae Pankey went missing while camping at Pine Bar campgrounds on April 15, 2018.  Shawnta left with her boyfriend around 2:30 a.m. to go camping. A surveillance camera shows them both outside the Grangeville, Idaho apartment.  Later that day Shawnta was to pick up her daughter at her grandmother’s house at 5 p.m. but she never showed up.  The boyfriend texted the grandmother around 3:30 p.m. asking if she had seen Shawnta.

According to the boyfriend’s statements to authorities, he and Shawnta had set up their campsite at Pine Bar campgrounds around 10:00 a.m. He told police they got into an argument along the Salmon River, and Shawnta walked away.

A Facebook post by the Sheriff’s office says they, along with the Idaho County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, the Idaho Dept. of Fish and Game, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Cottonwood Police Department, began searching the area around Pine Bar and Graves Creek. But Sheriff Giddings says nothing of significance was found, and it’s difficult to know where to keep searching.

Shawnta LaRae Pankey is described as being a white female who is about 5’4” tall and weighs 135 lbs. She has long, red, curly hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a blue and green tank top, blue jeans, pink cowboy boots and possibly carrying a brown leather purse. If you have any information on Shawnta’s whereabouts, please contact the Idaho County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 208-983-1100.
