Tuesday Afternoon, Gov. Steve Sisolak Delivered a Statement About a High-Profile Escapee

LAS VEGAS – Tuesday afternoon Gov. Steve Sisolak released the following statement regarding a high-profile inmate who escaped Southern Desert Correctional Center.

Sisolak says upon further investigation, officers now believe Porfirio Duarte-Herrera went missing early in the weekend.

This morning, my office was informed by the Nevada Department of Corrections that an inmate was reported as missing. My Office later learned that upon further investigation by NDOC the inmate has been missing since early in the weekend. This is unacceptable.

My Office has ordered NDOC to conduct and complete a thorough investigation into this event as quickly as possible. This kind of security lapse cannot be permitted and those responsible will be held accountable.

NDOC continues to work with law enforcement officials in the pursuit of this inmate. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the escaped inmate should immediately call 911.

The prisoner has been missing since Friday night, and the Nevada Department of Corrections updated the public on the situation Tuesday at around 6 o’clock.

According to reports, Duarte-Herrera was reported missing on Tuesday at 7 a.m. after a scheduled count revealed that she was not present.

After then, the entire prison was put on lockdown. At around 8 a.m., officials say, additional evacuation plans were activated.

Based on his prior conviction, Duarte-Herrera is considered dangerous, according to NDOC.

Call 911 immediately if you know anything about his whereabouts.
