Missing Minimum Security Inmate Returned to the New Hampshire State Prison

(Concord, N.H.) A minimum security male inmate who walked away from the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester on April 7, 2013 has been returned to the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord. Leeland Eisenberg, 52, was returned to the prison shortly before 12:00 pm on April 8, 2013. He is charged with Escape which is a Class B felony punishable by up to 3 1/2 - 7 years in prison.

At approximately 3:00 pm on Sunday Corrections Officers conducted a routine population count and discovered that Inmate Eisenberg was not in his room. Officers searched the building and the perimeter and he was not found. He was placed on walkaway status shortly thereafter. The Department implemented its procedures aimed at apprehension by notifying New Hampshire State and local police.

At approximately 8:30 am on Monday Manchester Police responded to the Manchester Community Resource Center at 434 Lake Avenue where Inmate Eisenberg was spotted. He was apprehended without incident.

The New Hampshire Department of Corrections Investigations Bureau and the New Hampshire State Police are conducting an ongoing investigation into the cause and circumstances that led to the inmate's disappearance. Any court appearances will be scheduled at a later date.
