Two inmates at the Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp in Newcastle escaped late Sunday and remain on the loose, authorities said Monday.

The inmates, Jason Green and Robert Simpson, were discovered missing at 10:30 p.m. Sunday during a facility count, according to the Department of Corrections. Authorities conducted a full search of the facility but did not find the inmates.

Officials at the facility alerted local law enforcement and area residents.

Both men are considered dangerous and should not be approached, according to the Department of Corrections. Instead, people should contact law enforcement or dial 911.

Green is serving a three- to eight-year sentence for larceny. Simpson is serving a five- to 15-year sentence for aggravated burglary with a weapon.

The conservation camp contains three dorms that house 238 minimum security inmates, according to the corrections department. It’s also home to the Wyoming Boot Camp Program.

Authorities believe a truck stolen Monday morning was tied to the escape, according to a post on the Weston County Emergency Management Office’s Facebook page. The truck, which belonged to the town of Newcastle, is tan with a white utility bed and toolbox compartments.

Green, 48, is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs roughly 170 pounds. He has white and gray hair and blue eyes.

Simpson is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes.

Authorities believe Simpson left the facility with a black Labrador.
