Escapee Derrick Lee Brock Still At Large, Search Continues Statewide
The search continues statewide for a Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp inmate who was reported missing from his work detail at the fairgrounds in Douglas Friday morning.
Law enforcement from Natrona and Converse Counties are working with officials from the Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp, in Newcastle, in the search for Derrick Lee Brock who was reported missing from his work detail early Friday.
"They were on a work detail for our forestry program cleaning up the state fair grounds in Douglas. Every half hour they check on them and that's when he was discovered missing at 6:30 this morning."
Spokesperson for the minimum security prison in Newcastle, Wanda Kerns, says Brock, who is white, is 5 foot 8 inches tall, approximately 170-pounds. He has a fair complexion, blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a green shirt.
Kerns also says, reports that Brock was headed to Casper are unsubstantiated and Casper is just one of many possibilities.
Kerns also stresses that, while the Honor Conservation Camp is a minimum security facility, all escapees are considered dangerous and should not be approached.
"He is minimum security, but when they are on escape status you never know what people are capable of."
Brock was sentenced in 2011 to 7 to 10 years on a Larceny charge. If you have any information on his whereabouts contact your local law enforcement.
