Authorities in Wilmington say they are searching for an inmate, who failed to comply with an approved pass.

The Plummer Community Corrections Center, in Wilmington, says that 25-year-old Daniel Torres, has failed to report to work after being issued an approved work pass.

Torres is described by law enforcement as a male, standing 6’02”, weighing 195 pounds, with black hair, and brown eyes. He also apparently has tattoos on his back, left and right forearms, and on his neck. His last known address is reported as being in Wilmington, Delaware.

Officials say that Torres’ location is unknown, and unauthorized at this time, so a warrant for escape and conviction has been issued. According to the report, Torres’ current offense is violation of probation, and subsequent offenses of possession of a controlled substance.

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.
