Two inmates from the Mill Creek Correctional Facility are on the loose after walking away from separate work crews in Salem on Tuesday.

Justin Carnes was discovered missing near the Oregon State Penitentiary at 11:55 a.m. He was assigned to a crew working on the grounds at the prison.

Carnes, 30, is a white man, 6 feet tall and 210 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans with the word "inmate" and the Department of Corrections logo stenciled on the knee in orange, as well as a blue T-shirt with the word "inmate" and the DOC logo stenciled in orange on the front and back.

Carnes entered custody in March 2015 on convictions for first-degree assault and delivery of heroin out of Marion County. His earliest release date would have been February 2020.

At around the same time, inmate William McGinnis was discovered missing from a work crew at Salem's Bush Park. Authorities said he was last seen at 12:05 p.m. Tuesday.

McGinnis, 30, is a white man, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 190 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was also last seen wearing prison clothing marked with the words "inmate" and the DOC logo.  

McGinnis entered Oregon Department of Corrections custody in November 2014 for first-degree burglary in Lincoln County. His earliest release date was April 2017.

Anyone with information about the location of the two inmates is asked to call Oregon State Police at 1-800-452-7888.

Mill Creek Correctional Facility is an unfenced, minimum-security prison in Salem that houses approximately 290 male inmates who are within four years of release.
