Authorities searched Thursday for two offenders who walked away from a California Department of Corrections facility in Los Angeles.

The first offender was reported missing about 7:45 p.m and the second at 9 p.m., according to a statement from the Department of Corrections,

An emergency search was conducted after it was discovered that Johnny Woods, 52, and Jacob Stuck, 30, had departed the facility without permission.

Law enforcement was notified and corrections agents were dispatched to locate and apprehend Woods and Stuck, the statement said.

It’s unclear if the pair was working together.

Woods is white, 5-feet-7 and 209 pounds with significant face and neck tattoos. He was sentenced in June 2016 to four years in prison for second-degree robbery and had been at the Los Angeles facility since Aug. 14.

Stuck is white, 6-feet and 256 pounds. He was sentenced in June 2017 to nearly three years in prison for false imprisonment with violence and was transferred to the Los Angeles facility Aug. 1.

Anyone with information on Woods’ or Stuck’s whereabouts was asked to immediately call 911.

Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended, according to the Department of Corrections.
