Arrest warrant with no public record

My fiance is currently in Kdoc
custody about to be released, and
according to the prison Johnson
county KS is going to pick him up
when he is because of an arrest
warrant, but when I search court
records and warrants, I can not
find any information on said
warrant. Is there a reason why?

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to find information on the warrant.  Many jurisdictions still use hand-entry for inputting information into databases.  If someone is behind on entry, there is a chance that you can't find anything because the data has not been inputted yet.  The second reason may be that the warrant has been issued by a judge and the judge still has the warrant...again it may not be inputted.  If a judge issued the warrant, then some judges can and seal a warrant until the warrant is fully executed and for a couple of weeks thereafter.
