An inmate escaped from the San Joaquin County honor farm in French Camp sometime before 2 a.m. Sunday, the Sheriff's Office reported.
Nicholas Perez, 21, was discovered missing from the facility during the 2 a.m. inmate count. He was less than three months from being released.
Perez, of Manteca, was in custody for auto theft, burglary and theft convictions. He was serving jail time at the minimum-security facility and had been scheduled to be released Sept. 30. But he may face additional charges for escaping the jail.
