TILLAMOOK, Ore. – Police are warning people that an inmate escaped from the Tillamook Youth Correction Facility on Saturday and he should be considered dangerous.
Joshua Garvin, 22, escaped from the facility sometime after noon, according to Ann Snyder of the Oregon Youth Authority. He is from Clackamas County and could be headed that way.
An extensive search of the area was conducted immediately and continued through Sunday, but so far, Garvin has not been found.
Garvin was described as being 5’9″ tall, and around 180 pounds, with short blond hair. When he escaped, he was wearing a camouflage Duck Dynasty sweatshirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes.
“Garvin may pose a danger to himself or others. For this reason, the public is urged not to approach him, but to call law enforcement if he is sighted,” said Lieutenant Bill Fugate with Oregon State Police.
Garvin was in OYA custody for sex offenses and was sentenced as a juvenile before the age of 18.
