Jamie Louise Treakle Montiel disappeared Aug. 17 in Camp Verde, seemingly without a trace.

Friends, family and law enforcement have been searching for the Cottonwood woman. The Camp Verde Marshal's Office wants the public's help in gathering information that could locate her.

Montiel was last seen after being released from the Yavapai County Detention Center off State Route 260 and Old Cherry Road around 12:55 p.m.

Darby Martin, public information officer for CVMO, said the detective has brought in other agencies in the investigation and they have been "beating the streets" in the area and neighboring communities. They have talked to family and friends to get clues to Montiel's whereabouts.

Early reports indicated Montiel had initially called a boyfriend to pick her up. When that did not work out, she called her estranged husband. Since then, she has not been heard from. Family is worried because she has not made contact with her children.

Jamie Treakle Montiel was last seen wearing black shorts and a black tank top.

According to CVMO, a vehicle of interest in her disappearance is a black Chevy S-10 pickup with Arizona license plate AKD4812.

Anyone with information on Jamie or the Chevy S-10 pickup is asked to contact the Marshal's Office at 567-6621 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 immediately.


CAMP VERDE -- The Camp Verde Marshal's Office is asking for help to find a missing woman who was released from jail and then vanished.

The missing woman is Jamie Louise (Montiel) Treakle of Cottonwood. She was last heard from by her boyfriend when she called him Friday, just before 1 p.m. Treakle called the boyfriend to notify him she was being released from the Camp Verde Detention Center and needed a ride. When the boyfriend arrived at the detention center, Treakle was nowhere to be found. She was last known to be in the area of Old Cherry Road and SR 260 after being released from jail.

She had been jailed on a warrant for failure to pay fines in the Verde Valley Justice Court.

Treakle has made no contact with her children who are in the care of their grandparents, a situation completely out of character. Treakle's family members believe she met with foul play.

Anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Jamie L. Treakle, is encouraged to contact the Camp Verde Marshal's Office immediately at (928) 567-6621.

I'm not sure I understand what some of you are saying. Are you saying it is wasteful of taxpayers money to extend a hand in compassion, to someone who lives in the community and has no lift back into town, has been a victim of abuse, and knowing that man who was officially in their custody,who was released for a few days to take care of his EYEBALL? really who does that? oh I know CVMO. Is that so they dont have to pay for it ,TAXPAYER? Does it really cost anything to be kind and get a woman back to the community so many of you are from? Isnt this your hometown? Dont you care at all? I would hate to see your family missing, that is if your lucky enough to have one. Maybe then CVMO can help you out .Have a great day 'sick and tired'. And another thing who really cares if someone graduates from the 8th grade or the 12th grade.What do you care? This person is obviously affected deeply by this tragedy? Have a heart people! Care about something other than yourself.

@Mickey Mouse - Law Enforcement failed this woman and her family EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. I understand your defensive stance, if you are in law enforcement you may feel that you do all you can on a daily basis and deserve recognition for that. It is fine to feel that way and maybe you do derserve appreciation, however as a law enforcement officer you should be questioning what more could have been done to save a life, to prevent a crime. Instead of lashing out at the citizens you are supposed to be seving, (you do realize that you are in a public service position right?), on a public forum ANONYMOUSLY maybe you should be reflecting on yourself, your coworkers, your bosses and the different departments in your field. Nothing can be fixed by constant denial and it definately will not restore the publics' respect for you or your comrads. By the way, I am not a cop hater and I do aprreciate work well done by law enforcement, but this is not an example, by any stretch of the imagination, of law enforcement "doing all they can" as you said in your post.

This is what Arizona justice is all about. Hand out fines you know the young mother is incapable of paying, then like a joke by the court system, they add more fines and send this mother to jail at the tax payers expense. This is called F.A.R.E. fines and restitution enforcement.

Now the state will have to spend more taxpayer money to convict the dirtbag that killed her and supply him with three hots and a cot for the rest of his life. Then the state welfare system will pay to help raise these children that now have no parents, all because they refuse to try and come up with a better system, than throwing all poor people in jail that dont have fine money. This state has recreated debtors prison at its ugliest and calls it F.A.R.E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thoughts and prayers to the family of Jamie Louise Treakle.

As far as the Camp Verde Marshal's Office and YCSO - this was a total boondoggle! Call DPS is you need help on the big cases!

Are you people kidding me! The men and women in blue who put there lives on the line for idiotoc morons who don't like law enforcement or the government. Why don't you like law enforcement? Is it because you are stupid enough to do a crime and get caught for it? There are people out there who get arrested and thank law enforcement for helping them see where their life was going. Y'all need to open your eyes the cops are doing all they can. And how the hell can there be to many cops? If anything there are to few cops out there. If you need the cops and hate them so much don't call then. Geez people quit complaining!!!

In February a friend was in the Camp Verde jail overnight (for a minor infraction that he was later found innocent of).

I called the jail every couple of hours the next day to find out what time he was going to be released so I could pick him up and drive him the 16 miles back to Cottonwood. Every time I called the jail, they assured me that they would give him my new cell phone (he didn't know my new number) and that he would be released later in the day. I must of called 5 times during the day.

As it turns out, when I called the last time to check, they told me that he had already been released. They would not even look outside for me to see if he was waiting on the bench near the jail exit. So I drove over to the jail from Cottonwood and he was not there.

The next time I saw him, he said that no one had given him my number.

I think this is a sad state of affairs.
There is no reason to make getting a ride home from the jail a big drama for all concerned.

Article comment by: Seriously, does this not concern people?

I too am a little baffled at the comments here. Someone from our community has disappeared into thin air. This scares me to death. It doesn't sound like a case of someone leaving purposefully 1) because of her children and 2) why would she call and ask for a ride if she had other plans? I think everyone should be alarmed here at what evil may be lurking in or right outside of our community. I have kids that run and play outside and this has me a bit shaken. Has there been any updates? I haven't seen anything in the paper and am just curious, where has this case gone since this article was written?

I witnessed what appeared to be a domestic violence incident on Monday, August 20 at 6:15 p.m. on Hwy 260 and General Crook Trail, and stopped to assist the woman. The woman refused my help. I reported what I saw to CVMO on Wed, at 8:30 a.m., after hearing the radio announcement. CVMO has all my contact information, and I hope the family was informed. This picture in the paper looks quite different from the photo CVMO is showing.

I hold the Sheriffs department directly responsible for this woman disappearance.

Awesome to see that tax dollars, which the government is constantly wasting anyway, is more important than ensuring that a human life is spared or that a person (even if they have been released from jail) is able to make it home safe. Doesn't it make so much more sense to have a fleet of county vehicles out trimming the bushes on the side of the road. Or spending over a million dollars on a freaking round-about at Mingus and Willard. Yes, sick and tired, the government wastes taxpayer money all the time on ridiculous things we do not need. An example of that wasteful spending is the huge court facility they built off of Cherry Rd., millions of dollars went into building that. Does anyone really need that? Do we really need to employ as many cottonwood cops as there are? Do taxpayers need to by the law enforcement agencies in the area new cars every year? Why not help people rather than always arresting them? It makes more sense to me that we use tax dollars to help the community not punish the community. We put people in jail because they can't afford to pay dog at large tickets, or someone who got a speeding ticket and couldn't pay the fine. Come on! GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM NOT THE SOLUTION!
