Linn County inmate walks out of hospital

Posted: Updated:
LINN COUNTY (KWWL) -

The Linn County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help with finding an inmate who walked out of a hospital this weekend.

Authorities say 41-year-old Wendee Chalupa was arrested Thursday night for contempt of court. She was sent to Mercy Hospital to be evaluated for a medical condition Sunday afternoon.

A detainer was placed on her, meaning prior to her release, Mercy Hospital Staff would contact the Linn County Sheriff's Office when she was being released from the hospital. Authorities say she left the hospital without the staff's knowledge at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday night.

If you have any information on her whereabouts, you're asked to contact the Linn County Sheriff's Office at (319) 892-6100.
