Two inmates walk away from California prison camp

Inmates escape Delta Conservation Camp
Two inmates from Los Angeles walked away early Tuesday morning from a corrections camp in Northern California.

Eduardo Hernandez, 29, and Jose Padilla, 32, were last seen on a work crew outside the Delta Conservation Camp in Solano County about 4:30 a.m., according to a report from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Both were wearing orange pants and shirts, with “CDCR” printed on the back.

Hernandez has been at the camp since July for a carjacking conviction and was due to be paroled in 2016.

Padilla has been imprisoned since earlier this year for domestic violence, stalking and making terrorist threats and was up for parole in 2015, the CDCR said.
