Three female inmates have been reported missing from a minimum-security correctional center in Bakersfield, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation announced early Friday.
The inmates at Casa Aurora, a female rehabilitative community correctional center at 1932 Jessie St. in east Bakersfield, were discovered missing from their beds Thursday night, and a thorough search turned up no sign of them, according to a news release. Warrants have been issued for the three “walk-aways.”
The inmates were identified as Elaina Paramore, 30, Lorrena Pena, 39, and Laura Serrano, 28.
Paramore was committed to CDCR on Dec. 5, 2012 from San Diego County to serve a four-year sentence for child endangerment and attempting to introduce a controlled substance into a jail/prison, the news release said. She is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Pena was committed to CDCR on Jan. 24, 2013 from Los Angeles County to serve a two-year sentence for first-degree burglary, according to the news release. She is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 3 inches tall, 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
Serrano was committed to CDCR on Jan. 21, 2010 from Kings County to serve a two-year, eight-month sentence for possession of a controlled substance for sale, the news release said. She is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 7 inches tall, 250 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
The California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement have been contacted for assistance in apprehending the inmates.
The Bakersfield center offers treatment services, counseling and classes to low-security female inmates.
Anyone with information about the inmates is asked to call 911 or 916-201-5567.
