UPDATE:

Trinity decided to come home. The 9-foot boa constrictor that went missing sometime between Friday night and Saturday afternoon slithered back into its owner's garage Sunday afternoon, according to KTVB. The Nampa Police Department issued a news release calling Trinity "no longer a 'snake of interest' by this department." 

ORIGINAL POST: SATURDAY, SEPT. 9, 10:45 a.m.

A boa constrictor named Trinity has gotten out of its Nampa home and escaped into the town. Nampa police were clued into the disappearance when a resident called on Sept. 13 to report the 9-foot-long Colombian boa was missing.

According to a news release, the snake lived in a plexiglass cage in the owner's garage at a home in the 600 block of Drift Wood Lane, near the Roosevelt and Midland area. When the owner went to check on the animal Saturday—it was last seen at 4 p.m. on Friday—it was gone. It appears the snake broke a section of the plexiglass and escaped.

Despite searches around the house and neighborhood, Trinity has not yet been found.

The snake reportedly last ate three weeks ago. It usually eats every two weeks. If you see the snake, the Nampa Police Department asks that you call 208-465-2257. Do not try to catch it.
