MANCHESTER — Authorities are looking for a missing inmate after he never returned from work on Monday.
Prison officials said Stephen Paul Edgerly Sr., 44, formerly of Rochester, went to work around 5 a.m. Monday and his employer sent him home at noon but he never returned to the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit. Edgerly was placed on escape status at 2 p.m.
He is described as a white male, 5-feet, 8-inches tall, weighing 200 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. He has tattoos on his back, shoulders, right forearm, upper left arm, and head.
Edgerly has been convicted of felonious sexual assault and had most recently been sentenced in Strafford County Superior Court for 2½-five years for failure to register as a sex offender. He was admitted to the New Hampshire State Prison on May 15, 2015, and was eligible for parole on June 12 with a maximum release date of Dec. 14, 2019. He is also on parole for witness tampering and first-degree assault.
Anyone with information on Edgerly's whereabouts should contact local law enforcement or the New Hampshire State Police.
A walkaway from a transitional housing unit is considered to be an escape, which is a class B felony, punishable by 3½-seven years in prison.
