ANCHORAGE -

Alaska State Troopers are asking for the public's help in locating a detainee from North Star Detention Center who escaped while being processed.

Troopers are looking for 24-year-old Vincent Blue-Matheny, who escaped on foot from the NSDC lobby at 10:33 a.m. while his transfer to a halfway house was being processed.

He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt under a black hoodie under a black hockey jersey, gray sweat pants, and black shoes. He is described as a white male, 5'6" tall and weighing roughly 165 pounds. He has a birth mark on his left cheek.

Blue-Matheny was in custody for violating conditions of his release for the original charges of driving under the influence, failure to stop at the direction of a police officer, endangering the welfare of a minor child, driving with a revoked license and fourth-degree domestic violence assault.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1 or 451-5100.
