Authorties Seeking Missing Inmate

KSAL StaffMarch 24, 2014

The Kansas Department of Corrections has been looking for an inmate who was mistakenly released from a southwest Missouri jail.

The KDOC handed 35-year-old Sean P. McKenzie over late last year to authorities in Vernon County, Mo., so he could stand trial on theft charges there. When those charges were dropped Feb. 25, Vernon County officials ran a check to see if there was any reason to hold McKenzie.

Vernon County Jail Administrator Lt. Mike Buehler says McKenzie’s file showed nothing indicating he needed to be held for Kansas, so he was released the day after the Missouri charges were dropped.

Kansas Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay says McKenzie has several convictions in Kansas for theft, burglary and escape and should be considered dangerous
