Police on lookout for escapee


A man who escaped from a California prison camp could be headed to Pendleton.

Police are on the look out for Nathan Simpson, 30, a minimum-security inmate who escaped from the Delta Conservation Camp just outside Suisun City, Calif., northwest of the Bay Area. Early this morning Pendleton police received a report that Simpson has a sister in Pendleton.  

Margaret Pieper, public information officer for the California Correctional Center Division of Adult Institutions, said Simpson does have a family member whose last known address was in Pendleton. 

Oregon State Police have reported Simpson has associates in Washington County. However, OSP noted, there is no confirmed information he has traveled to Oregon.

Simpson was serving time for vehicle theft with prior convictions, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. And he was up for parale in September.

Simpson is a white male, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 150 pounds, has brown eyes, brown hair and a fair complexion. He was last seen Sunday at approximately 9:30 p.m. wearing Oregon Blaze colored jeans and shirt with the initials C.D.C.R. prisoner on the back.

Authorities said anyone with information about or knowledge of the Simpson location should contact the California Correctional Center Watch Commander at 530-257-2181, Ext. 4173. And anyone who sees Simpson should contact 9-1-1 or law enforcement authorities immediately.
