A former Lebanon woman who was reported missing earlier this week has been found and is now behind bars in Laclede County.

Early this week, the Camden County Sheriff’s Department reported that Lesley D. Rhoads Rogers had been reported as a missing/endangered person. She had last been seen with her ex-husband, Philip Jeffrey Rogers of Lebanon, in a residential area north of Camdenton.

A Camden County Sheriff’s Department press release reported that a woman claiming to be Rogers called the sheriff’s office to say she was fine. Camden County wrote that the missing entry would remain active until they had confirmed the identity of the caller.

Lt. Arlyne Page of the Camden County Sheriff’s Department chuckled at the Facebook posts she had seen that speculated the Department was attempting to lure Rogers in to arrest her for a warrant by asking her to confirm her safe status. She confirmed that this was not the case.

The online Laclede County inmate roster showed her as incarcerated on Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. for a misdemeanor probation violation. She was still in Laclede County Jail as of Thursday afternoon.
