Inmate Martin Eric Joseph sought after walking away from Stewart Conservation Camp in Carson City

Law enforcement is looking for Martin Joseph 49, after he walked away from a work detail at the Stewart Conservation Camp located in South Carson City, according to The Nevada Department of Corrections.

He was last seen this afternoon around 3 p.m. near the edge of the ranch complex which is located off of Snyder Avenue near Northern Nevada Correctional Center. It is believed he was picked up and driven away from the property but we have no vehicle details at this time.

Joseph is 6 feet tall, 225 pounds, hazel eyes, with a fair complexion and dark hair but tends to keep his head shaved. Joseph has “M.J.” on his left hand, “100%” on back of upper left arm and “Wood” back of right upper arm and was last seen wearing blue and/or white clothing. A retake warrant has been issued.

Joseph,arrived at NDOC from Washoe County, on Dec. 8 2014. Joseph was serving 19 to 48 months for grand larceny of a motor vehicle. He was approved for parole in 2015 but violated and returned to NDOC December that year. In March 2016, Joseph was moved to the Stewart Conservation Camp where he worked at the ranch.

Anyone with information on whereabouts of Martin Eric Joseph, contact 911 or their local law enforcement agency.

NDOC partners with the Nevada Division of Forestry to run 9 Conservation Camps in the state. The camps are for minimum security inmates who are scheduled to be released within two years. Inmates in the camps are trained to fight wildland fires and are deployed to handle weed abatement, highway clean-up and other jobs when in the off season. Over 500 inmates assisted with sandbagging and other jobs during the recent flooding in Northern Nevada.
