Minimum Security Inmate Missing from Manchester Transitional Housing Unit

(Manchester, NH) The New Hampshire Department of Corrections reports that a work release inmate at the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester has been placed on walk away status. David James Wilson, 31, of South Gardiner, Maine left the facility at 6:45 am on June 10, 2016 to report to work. When Correctional staff called the inmate’s employer he was told that the inmate was not scheduled to work today. The inmate was scheduled to return at 3:30 pm but he was placed on escape status at 12:30 pm.

This incident is separate from one that occurred on Thursday, June 9, 2016.

Inmate Wilson is described as white male, 6 feet tall, 200 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. He has tattoos on his back, right hand, right forearm, and left face.

He is serving a 2-6 year sentence for Robbery from Rockingham County Superior Court. He was paroled to this sentence from an earlier 2 to 6 year sentence for Armed Robbery from Rockingham County Superior Court. He received 293 days of time served credited to his earlier sentence. He was admitted to the New Hampshire State Prison on July 3, 2013 and is eligible for parole on his current sentence on September 10, 2016. His maximum release date is September 9, 2020.

The New Hampshire Department of Corrections Investigations Bureau and the New Hampshire State Police are investigating. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the New Hampshire State Police or their local law enforcement agency. Walking away from a Corrections Transitional Housing Unit is considered an escape, which is a Class B felony punishable by 3 ½ - 7 years in prison.
