The Orofino Police Department is seeking information from the public regarding the location of Candi R. Chandler, 36, of Orofino. Candi was reported missing by her father, Keith Chandler, on June 2.
Keith informed the Police Department that he last spoke to Candi on May 31. Keith indicated Candi, and her vehicle, was missing and he has been unable to make contact with her. He also indicated she had not been in contact with any of her minor children since the 31.
Keith indicated Candi may be in the company of her ex-boyfriend, Jeremy R. Anderson, 42, of Orofino and he was concerned for her safety. The Orofino Police Department had responded to a domestic abuse complaint at Candi’s residence in
Orofino during the early morning hours of May 25, 2022. The investigation determined that Candi had allegedly been battered by Jeremy Anderson. Anderson had fled the home prior to the arrival of officers.
Subsequently, a felony arrest warrant was issued for Anderson charging him with domestic battery and being a habitual offender. It was learned that Anderson was on probation through Idaho Probation and Parole. An Agent’s Warrant was also issued for Anderson with nationwide extradition.
On June 6, with the assistance of the Asotin County Sheriff’s Department, Candi’s missing vehicle was located at a residence near Clarkston. It was reported that Candi had left the vehicle at that residence and may have left in a different vehicle (a white 4-dr but unknown make and model) with Anderson.
The Police Department is working to substantiate that information. If Candi is in the company of Anderson, it is unclear if she is doing so by choice or if she is under duress. The Police Department is considering Candi to be an At-Risk missing person. The investigation is ongoing.
If anyone has any information about Candi or Anderson, or their location, please contact the Orofino Police Department immediately at 208-476-5551 or your local law enforcement agency.
