Search Continues For Inmate Who Escaped From Connecticut Prison

CT prison officials say an inmate who escaped from a medium security prison this weekend has a tattoo on his neck that reads, "Time Waits For No One".

Police are searching for an inmate who escaped from the Carl Robinson Correctional Institute in Enfield Sunday afternoon.

Mercado is described as male, 5-foot-4, and 137 pounds.

Police said that 25-year-old Jerry Mercado was last seen Sunday morning at 10:20 a.m.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact state police in Hartford.

Semple said the department does not believe anyone from outside the prison assisted Mercado in the escape, but that remained part of the investigation.

Semple said the state is examining security procedures at the state's other correctional facilities.

Enfield residents said they received an alert about the escaped inmate.

Semple said investigators believe Mercado, who has a prominent tattoo near his left eye, may be in the Hartford area.

State police said around 3:15 p.m., the low-risk offender was deemed "unaccounted for".
