The man believed to have left with a 14-year-old Wilder girl on Monday was booked into Canyon County jail on Tuesday evening.

Police reported Tuesday that they found 14-year-old Jasmyne Olenik safely and were still looking for Hector Flores Arias, 35. Arias was in the jail roster Wednesday.

On Monday, police began investigating the case after Jasmyne had last been seen leaving Wilder High School and police believed the girl left school voluntarily to meet Arias.

Arias was wanted by police for questioning and the Canyon County jail’s inmate roster showed he was booked in around 5:15 p.m. Tuesday and is behind held on a parole violation.

Online court records show Arias has several convictions for felony drug possession in Canyon County and misdemeanor domestic violence. He was released on parole in June 2017, according to the Idaho Department of Correction’s online records.

It’s unclear if new charges will be filed in connection to any believed interaction with the teenage girl.

The Idaho Statesman will update this story as more information becomes available.
