A 10-foot boa constrictor who got away from its Salem owner has been located — in the wall.

A 23-year-old snake named Nomad was reported missing by its Salem owner.

Marion County Sheriff's Office

The sheriff’s office reported late last month that the owner feared the snake named Nomad had gotten out a second-story window and might be loose in the neighborhood.

So, authorities searched for it and, since boa constrictors crush their prey, urged residents to be mindful of children and pets until it was found.

The sheriff’s office said Wednesday it appears the female snake crawled through a hole and stayed inside the wall.

The owners told deputies they’d bought a better cage.
