The Department of Public Safety says that an extended furlough inmate failed to report for his scheduled check-in Wednesday evening at the Hale Nani Reintegration Center.

Jason Cantan, 37, was serving time for Identity Theft 2 and Promoting Prison Contraband. Officials say that his next parole hearing is scheduled for April.

Inmates who are part of the extended furlough program live and work outside of the facility but are required to check-in at various times throughout the week.

Cantan has been described as 6’2” and 230 pounds. He also has brown hair and brown eyes.

Officials advise the public to call the Hawai’i Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 with information on Cantan’s whereabouts.
