Deputies in Kings County are looking for an escaped inmate who walked away from his low security environment.
Nestor Daniel Diaz, 32, walked away from his inmate worker assignment at the Kings County shop on South 11th Avenue in Hanford about 1:50 p.m. Friday, the Sheriff’s Office said.
He is 5-foot-7 with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of the letter “M” on his left cheek and “Michigan” on his neck.
Diaz was serving jail time for being under the influence of illegal drugs, and was arrested in February on drug paraphernalia, being under the influence and trespass charges.
He was due to be released May 23.
He’s well known to law enforcement and detectives are checking homeless encampments for him.
Anyone who sees him should call the Kings County Sheriff’s Office at 559-584-1431.
