2 inmates escape from minimum security halfway house
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire corrections officials say two inmates have escaped through a window from a minimum security halfway house in Concord.
Spokesman Jeff Lyons says 45-year-old Jonathan Conrad Ellinger and 42-year-old Dale Wayne Clark were reported missing from the transitional housing facility around 9 p.m. Saturday. He says another inmate told staffers the inmates left through a window.
Lyons says Ellinger was serving a 3- to 6-year sentence for armed robbery and was eligible for parole on January 3, 2017. He says Clark was serving a 1- to 5-year sentence for theft and had a release date of May 10, 2018.
Anyone with information about the inmates should contact their local police department or the New Hampshire State Prison at 603-271-1801.
