Cannot override checkout on MySite library document

blkfoot asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-23
We have SharePoint 2010 with some users utilizing MySites.  My boss has a document that shows as checked out to an employee but that employee doesn't have it opened.  There is no options to override the checkout and the employee that shows as having it opened has Full Control in the library.  My boss did not have the setting to require a check out in order to edit the documents checked (she does now).

The employee that has this checked out (not really) is not in the office and not reachable.

Any way to resolve this?
