ESCAPE FROM ANNEX: Search for Remaining Inmate Continues

Posted: Updated:

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement agencies are using all their resources including:  helicopters, dogs and horses.  Yet it hasn't led to Deante Huntley's capture so they'll continue to search throughout the night.

From one county to the other, the search for the last remaining inmate continues.

"We have multiple teams on the southeast part of Wichita Falls working it right now," said Sheriff Duke.

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office is working through all the leads trying to pin down an exact location of twenty three-year-old Deante Huntley.  So far they haven't been able to find him, but they do have enough information to believe he is hiding in Wichita Falls.

"We're not going to stop tonight or tomorrow until we apprehend this last individual," said Sheriff Duke.

Agencies from across Texoma have helped in the search to find him, but have since backed off.
 Yet Sergeant Joe Snyder with the Wichita Falls Police Department says officers are checking addresses when asked.
 
"I'm very pleased with the response that we had.  We reacted appropriately with all the assets that we had.  We got three of the four we're not going to finish until we get this fourth one," said Sheriff Duke.

Law enforcement agencies are describing Deante Huntley as twenty three-years-old stands 5'7, 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Sheriff David Duke did mention that Deante Huntley did not conspire with the other inmates, he simply left after they did and was never with them.

If you have any information on Deante Huntley's whereabouts please contact the Wichita County Sheriff's Office at 766-8170.
