The search continues for an inmate who escaped from the Delta Correctional Facility on Saturday, March 9. He was found missing during the 10 p.m. count.
The escapee is Adam Loehr, described as a 44-year-old white male, 5'7" tall and weighing 134 pounds, with green eyes, blond hair and a slight beard. He was wearing olive green clothing and black boots.
The Colorado Department of Corrections, the lead agency on the search, has received reports of possible sightings in the Grand Junction area.
Delta County Sheriff Mark Taylor said his office is not involved in looking for the escapee, but he does advise residents to keep their homes and cars locked. A CodeRed notification was issued to area residents, advising them to call 911 immediately if they spot Loehr. Do not approach or try to apprehend, the Colorado Department of Corrections advises.
Loehr was convicted on charges of attempting to influence a public officer, criminal impersonation, substance abuse and menacing -- all out of El Paso County.
