A minimum-custody inmate walked away from an inmate work crew today, April 11, 2011, in Coos County. The work crew from Shutter Creek Correctional Institution was working at the Beaver Hill Disposal Site, between Coquille and Bandon, just off of Highway 101.
Twenty-one-year-old inmate Michael Lee Baker was noted missing at about 12:20 p.m. Baker is a white, 5'7" male, who weighs 135 pounds. He has short blond hair, fair skin and hazel colored eyes. At the time he walked away from the work crew he was wearing a yellow raincoat and rain pants. He was also wearing blue jeans, a khaki-colored, button-up, long-sleeved shirt, over a blue T-shirt, with a green ball cap and dark leather work boots. Clothing items, except for the rain gear, had "INMATE" prominently stenciled on them.
Baker was incarcerated June 24, 2008 on eight counts of Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle out of Lane County. His projected release date was Feb. 8, 2014.
Local police agencies and the Oregon State Police are coordinating efforts to locate Baker. As with all fugitives, he should be considered dangerous and not be approached. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts should contact the Oregon State Police at 1-800-452-7888, the non-emergency number of their local police department, or the Oregon Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension Unit at 503-945-9008.
