Laumaka inmate runs away 3 months before parole hearing

  • COURTESY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

    Gilbert Rivera Jr.

A Laumaka work furlough inmate ran away from the facility just three months before his scheduled parole hearing.

The Department of Public Safety said Gilbert Rivera Jr., 53, was supposed to meet with his case manager today and did not show up. He was reported missing about 1:30 p.m. and police and state sheriffs were notified.

Rivera is serving time for burglary and theft.

He is 5 feet 11 inches tall, and weighs about 170 pounds, with brown eyes, brown hair and he may have a long, gray goatee. He also has several tattoos around his face and neck.

Rivera was scheduled for a parole hearing in May, the Department of Public Safety said. He now faces an escape charge when he is captured.

Laumaka is a minimum security work furlough center for community custody inmates, located a block away from Oahu Community Correctional Center. Inmates assigned to Laumaka are either actively seeking employment or working in the community.
