Officials with the Washington State Department of Corrections are searching for a 32-year-old inmate who escaped the Cedar Creek Corrections Center in southwest Thurston County early Saturday morning.
Garrett Young, 32, was found to be missing during routine checks at 2:00 am Saturday, according to a news release from DOC. It appears he escaped by digging under a fence.
Units with Department of Corrections, Washington State Patrol, and the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with the search. Young was last seen wearing tan khaki pants, a red sweatshirt, and a tan jacket. He is 6’3″ tall, 200 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.
Young was incarcerated at Cedar Creek following convictions in Skagit County of possession of a stolen vehicle and eluding a police vehicle.
Anyone who sees him should call 911 immediately and not approach him.
