Inmate escapes Marysville jail;
no one notices for 2 days

MARYSVILLE — An inmate’s escape from a jail in Washington state went undetected for two days last week until the man’s defense lawyer stopped for a visit and he couldn’t be found.

The Daily Herald reports 19-year-old Rhyan Vasquez is back in custody in Marysville City Jail, north of Seattle, facing a possible escape charge along with a previous robbery allegation.

Court papers say his absence wasn’t noticed until last Wednesday when his lawyer asked to see him.

Jail staff checked surveillance video and saw that Vasquez had backed out a door and into a hallway on Sept. 22 while a group of inmates was returning from a Bible study class held in a visitation area.

Vasquez was booked back into jail Friday, but it’s unclear how he was caught.
