Many of you have asked about Coralbell and her community service and we wanted to provide an update, as well as closure for some.
On December 22nd, soon after decorating a certain detective's office, she requested a meeting with our city attorney. According to our attorney, she asked for a furlough for the remainder of the holidays and promised to return on or before December 27th. This was discussed by all parties involved and a decision was made to grant Coralbell the furlough. Quickly after the decision was finalized, Coralbell was seen slowly walking down the sidewalk near the Coralville Public Library on 5th St. She was last seen walking eastbound in front of Tip Top Cakes.
As December 27th came and went, Coralbell was nowhere to be found. She was officially put on "Escape status" after several unsuccessful attempts were made to locate her around the area. We attempted to use the Find My iPhone app, but apparently Coralbell didn't have it turned on. Phone calls to the number she provided upon her initial arrest went to a voicemail box that had yet to be set up. Eventually, we put an APB out for her in hopes that someone will come across her and bring her back to finish out her service to the community of Coralville.
We have attached the most recent photo of Coralbell for identification purposes. Most days she can be seen wearing a red top with white collar, red pants, white gloves, and a red/white hat.
