FBI searching for man who fired at Idaho trooper

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The FBI’s Minneapolis Field Office is searching for a man suspected of firing at an Idaho State Police trooper during a chase early Saturday and later kidnapping a woman who was dropped off unharmed in eastern Montana.

The Kootenai County sheriff’s department in Idaho obtained a $1 million warrant for the arrest of 57-year-old Mitchell Lee Walck on a kidnapping charge after investigators say the 62-year-old woman he reportedly kidnapped was released unharmed in Glendive, Mont.

Walck was last seen driving the woman’s 2005 silver Subaru Forester with Idaho license plate K230050.

The FBI says Walck may be traveling through North Dakota, South Dakota or Minnesota.

Walck is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call law enforcement.
