The Torrance County Sheriff’s Office says it’s searching for an escaped inmate.
Kyle Eltvedt, 36, is said to have escaped from the sheriff’s office holding cells in Estancia.
Eltvedt is wanted for aggravated battery.
He is described as 6-feet tall, 160 pounds, and was last seen wearing a black jacket, gray hoodie, blue tie-dye shirt, and black or gray pants.
The sheriff’s office says he was not wearing any shoes and may be covered with a gray wool blanket.
They say he was not armed when he left on foot but should be considered dangerous.
Residents are advised to stay in their homes and keep their doors and windows locked.
