Authorities searched Tuesday for an inmate who walked away from a minimum-security facility in Sylmar.

Fernando Deras, 31, was discovered missing about 1:25 a.m. Monday from the Holton Fire Camp during a routine inmate count, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Deras is Hispanic, 5 feet 9, 210 pounds, with a shaved head and brown eyes.

He was assigned to the facility last July to serve a four-year sentence for “corporal injury on a person or persons,” according to the CDCR.

Anyone seeing him was urged to call 911 or their law enforcement office.
