Authorities looking for man who escaped from Casper Re-Entry Center

Authorities are looking for a man who left Casper Re-Entry Center on Thursday and did not return as scheduled.

Scott Lee, 32, left the detention center for work at 12:45 p.m. Thursday and did not return when he was due back at 10 p.m. that night, Sgt. Aaron Shatto said.

The sheriff’s department had not found Lee by Monday morning.

Lee was serving part of a two-to-four year sentence after being convicted of robbery in Clark County.

He is a five-foot 11-inch tall, 200 pound, blond-haired white man with hazel eyes, according to a Natrona County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

The Casper Re-Entry Center is a privately owned facility that provides rehabilitation and substance abuse treatment to inmates before they are released.

The center operates under a contract with the Wyoming Department of Corrections.

The Wyoming Board of Patrol describes the Casper Re-Entry Center and other similar facilities as providing an “alternative to incarceration or traditional probation/parole supervision.”

Residents of the facility are required to hold off-site jobs and pay rent as part of their rehabilitation, according to the parole board.

The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office asked anyone with knowledge of Lee’s whereabouts to call 307-235-9282.

Wyoming man dies in crash on Interstate 25 near Casper

A Wyoming man died on Sunday following a crash on Interstate 25 near Casper.

Gallatin over corrected and the Subaru went into a slide. The car ran off the right side of the road before rolling three to four times. The Subaru came to a rest on its wheels, according to the report.

Gallatin was partially ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.

A passenger was thrown from the vehicle during the rollover and hospitalized with serious injuries, according to the report.

The report indicates that seat belts were not being properly used. The report does not list any further factors that led to the crash.
