Inmate missing from Manchester transitional housing unit

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - A minimum security inmate is missing from a Manchester transitional housing unit, according to Manchester police.

Police said a work release inmate at the Calumet Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester has been placed on walk away status.

David James Wilson, 31, of South Gardiner, Maine left the facility at 6:45 a.m. Friday to report to work.

When correctional staff called the inmate’s employer, they were told Wilson was not scheduled to work. Wilson was scheduled to return at 3:30 p.m., but he was placed on escape status at 12:30 p.m.

Wilson was described as a white man who is six feet tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes, and tattoos on his back, right hand, right forearm and left face.

Wilson is serving a two to six year sentence for robbery, and was paroled from an earlier sentence for armed robbery. He is eligible for parole on his current sentence on September 10, and his maximum release date is September 9, 2020.

The incident remains under investigation by the New Hampshire Department of Corrections Investigation Bureau and the New Hampshire state police.

Another inmate, 41-year-old Matthew Michael Gerlach, went missing from the facility Thursday. He was found by police Friday afternoon.

Anyone with any information regarding Wilson’s whereabouts is asked to call New Hampshire state police.
