Federal officials ask for help searching for escaped Colorado inmate

Last month, four inmates escaped from Bent County Jail, about 200 miles south of Denver. Federal officials are asking for the public’s help in finding the last one.

According to a Monday news release from the U.S. Department of Justice, two of the escapees were caught and returned to custody on Aug. 1 and a third was found dead in Pueblo County.

The U.S. Marshals in the District of Colorado and the FBI are asking for the public’s help to find 46-year-old Mark Desmond Fox, the last remaining escapee, officials announced Monday.

The two agencies are offering a combined reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to Fox’s arrest, the release said.

Fox is a bald, white male, 6 feet and 3 inches tall and weighs approximately 175 pounds. He is wanted for counts of escape, insurance fraud, obstruction of justice and extortion.

Authorities said Fox should be considered dangerous and anyone with information should contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-877-926-8332 or submit tips online.
