Authorities are searching for an inmate who walked out of a Los Angeles correctional facility on Saturday.
Carlos MontezThe 30-year-old walked out of the Male Community Reentry Program (MCRP) around 4:30 p.m., according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
The agent was alerted after receiving an alarm notification on Montez’s monitoring device. Staff searched the facility, but the man was nowhere to be seen.
Montez is described as a Hispanic male who stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 164 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a burgundy shirt and jean shorts.
Authorities said he was serving a five-year sentence for second-degree robbery and for evading or attempting to evade a sheriff while driving recklessly.
Montez was admitted to a correctional facility on February 14, 2022.
“MCRP allows eligible individuals held in state prisons to serve at the end of their sentences in re-entry facilities that provide the programs and tools necessary to transition from detention to the community,” officials said. “This is a voluntary program for men who have at least 60 days of service left for up to two years. It connects participants to a range of community-based rehabilitation services that support education, housing, family reunification and social support.”
Anyone who has seen Montez or knows his whereabouts is asked to contact law enforcement or call 911.
