FORTUNA – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are searching for a minimum-security inmate who walked away from the California Correctional Center (CCC) High Rock Conservation Camp (CC #32), in Humboldt County on Oct. 1, 2017.

Inmate David Carter, 27, was seen by a staff member at 5:50 p.m. on a hill near the High Rock camp. Carter ran south parallel to Highway 101, away from the camp. Carter was dressed in all state-issued orange clothing and a dark blue beanie. Carter was assigned as a firefighter at the camp, which houses approximately 100 minimum-custody inmates.
