Man who escaped Wilmington corrections center may still be at large

    Officials may still be looking for a 22-year-old man who escaped from the Plummer Community Corrections Center in Wilmington, Delaware.

    NBC10 reports that John Hensley was spotted leaving the facility on Thursday around 6:45 p.m. by climbing over a perimeter fence.

    “Hensley is described as a white male standing 5-foot-6 and weighing 170 pounds with brown eyes and a shaved head. Police also say he has pierced ears, a scar on his chest and tattoo on his right forearm. He was last seen wearing black pants and a black shirt. Police also say his last known address is in Wilmington.”

    No one at the Wilmington Police Department or the Plummer Community Corrections Center was willing to comment on whether or not Hensley is still at large.
