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.
