Garcia escaped from the Colorado Corrections minimum security facility at approximately 8 a.m. by scaling a fence. A Denver Post story reports Garcia was three months away from his mandatory parole release prior to the escape.

Because Garcia is considered dangerous, people who see him or have information that could help law enforcement find him are asked to call 911.
