California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for an inmate who "walked away" from the Salinas Valley State Prison September 14th.

Officials say 35-year-old Adam Beck, a minimum-security inmate, was discovered missing during a routine count around 5 a.m. Saturday.

In a press release, CDCR authorities say Beck was supposed to be in his assigned area as a dining worker.

Officials say Beck is a white male, 5’11” tall, weighing 170 pounds with green eyes and a bald head. He was last seen wearing gray shorts and a white T-shirt.

Anyone who sees inmate Beck should contact 911 or law enforcement authorities immediately. Anyone having information about or knowledge of the location of Beck should contact the SVSP Watch Commander at (831) 678-5500, extension 5542 or Special Agent Becerra at (916) 869-2002.

According to records, he was received by CDCR last September from Placer and Santa Clara County to serve four years for evading or attempting to evade a peace officer while driving recklessly and for carrying concealed dirk or dagger. Beck's earliest possible parole date was scheduled for December 2019 according to CDCR.
