A minimum-security inmate from the Wyoming Honor Conversation Camp in Newcastle who escaped last week in Converse County remained at large late Monday, officials say.

Derrick Lee Brock, 40, was found missing Friday morning while on work detail at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds in Douglas.

Authorities in Newcastle say they are looking for any leads in the case.

Brock was discovered missing at 6:30 a.m. Friday during an inmate count. Officials say he placed a backpack under blankets on his bed to mimic a sleeping body.

Brock was sentenced to seven to 10 years in prison this year for a larceny conviction. The felony came after authorities said Brock, a former assistant manager at Johnny J's Diner, stole more than $4,300 from his former employer.

He is 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. He is of fair complexion with blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a green shirt.

The public has been advised not to approach Brock if he is spotted, but to contact local law enforcement.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
