Mohave County authorities are searching for a woman who was mistakenly released from jail.

Melissa Bexell was released shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday from the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility due to a clerical error.

The 38-year-old Bexell was being held on a felony theft charge and a misdemeanor obstructing charge out of Bear Lake County, Idaho.

Sheriff's officials say Bexell is not considered to be a danger to the public.

She was last seen on foot wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and grey pants. She is described as being Caucasian, 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 150 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
