• Jordan Bowers was serving her sentence for endangering two children with drugs
  • She now faces three counts of first-degree identity theft and one count of second-degree identity theft
  • Police have not located the missing girl Oakley Carlson

The mother of missing Oakley Carlson, who was sentenced for child endangerment charges, has been arrested on charges of identity theft and fraud minutes after she was released from a Washington prison.

Jordan Bowers was released from Washington Corrections Center For Women in Gig Harbor on Sunday after serving her sentence for endangering her two other children with drugs. She was arrested again immediately and charged with three counts of first-degree identity theft and one count of second-degree identity theft, Grays Harbor Sheriff's Office said, reported KOMO News.

"These charges stem from complaints from multiple victims who experienced fraudulent banking activity. After the investigation was completed Jordan Bowers was identified as the primary suspect," the sheriff's office reportedly said.

Bowers was booked into Grays Harbor County Jail after her arrest.

Oakley's father, Andrew Carlson, is currently serving a sentence of 12 months in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of child endangerment with a controlled substance.

Oakley was last seen in February 2021 when she was five years old. An investigation into her disappearance began in December 2021 when her school principal called cops for a welfare check after one of Oakley's siblings told her at a sleepover that "Oakley is no more," court documents said.

Investigators searched the couple's residence and found toys and clothing for all kids, except Oakley. They also discovered blood on the blinds and the front door.

Oakley's siblings had "extremely high" levels of methamphetamine in their systems, prompting officers to arrest the parents on child endangerment charges. The suspects "knowingly or intentionally permitted two of their dependent children to be exposed to, ingest, inhale, or have contact with methamphetamine," court records showed.

Oakley's parents did not cooperate with investigators during the welfare check, King5 reported. However, Andrew and Bowers were not charged in connection with her disappearance.

Police are still looking for Oakley and seeking the public's help to locate the missing girl. Anyone with information about Oakley's disappearance should contact the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office at 360-533-8765 or contact Detective Sgt. Paul Logan at 360-964-1729 or by email at
