PCCC searching for another missing offender

Giovani Matos, 19, of Delaware

Authorities in Wilmington say they are searching for an offender, who reportedly failed to return from a pass.

The Plummer Community Corrections Center, in Wilmington, says that 19-year-old Giovani Matos, failed to return from an authorized work pass.

Matos is described by law enforcement as a male, standing 5’11”, weighing 180 pounds, with black hair, and brown eyes. He also apparently has a beard, and tattoos on his neck, upper and lower left and right arms, and his wrists. His last known address is reported as being in Wilmington, Delaware.

Officials say that Matos’ location is unknown, and unauthorized at this time, so a warrant for escape and conviction has been issued. According to the report, Truitt’s current offense is violation of probation, and tier 4 possession.

It is important to keep in mind that Community Corrections Centers are Level 4 facilities, where the Department of Correction manages offenders who are transitioning back into the community. So, these centers are not secured like Level 5 prisons, meaning offenders are permitted to the leave the facility to go to work, seek jobs or attend approved treatment sessions.

Officials ask that anyone with information on this offender should call 1-800-542-9524 or call your local police.
