The Department of Public Safety reports that a Big Island extended furlough inmate has failed to report for his scheduled check-in at Hawai’i Community Correctional Center.

Michael Joyce, 60, is serving time for Assault 2. It is anticipated that Escape 2 will also be added to his charges.

Joyce is described as 5-foot-6 and 150 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Inmates within the extended furlough program live and work outside the facility but are required to check in at various times.

Joyce is classified as community custody, which is the lowest custody level.
