Rather strange missing person/escapee case at DIA

I saw this article just now and since ATS is more than aware of the Denver Airport, I thought this was ripe for discussion.

Man being deported escapes at DIA

Two Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were escorting Phoday Dumbuya, 25, when he escaped, according to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement news release. He was being deported to Gambia.

Dumbuya was still on the loose Tuesday afternoon after escaping about 8:30 a.m.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman did not confirm the escape until about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, more than four-and-a-half hours after 9NEWS asked for confirmation.

ICE officers started immediately searching for Dumbuya and asked other law enforcement agencies to assist.

As far as I'm aware, DIA is quite far from any other buildings and sits out there in the middle of nowhere by itself. How can they not find this guy with all that barren land around the airport?
I bet that satanic horse they have at the gates knows where he is!

Or maybe he found the tunnel entrance to the underground?

This is just plain weird.
Even the rental car companies aren't in very close proximity even though they're on the airport grounds.

All Rental car companies at DIA are located on airport property but are away from the main terminal. Each rental company provides a courtesy shuttle to and from Jeppesen Terminal from their locations.

I'll be keeping my eyes open for any further details and post anything new.

I'm thinking it wasn't considered politically correct to handcuff a PRISONER being transported through a major public facility, right?

So they wait enough time for him to have probably walked all the way out the access road. I'm sure they had the brains to check that....but did it occur to them that waiting that long, he probably just caught a cab and either paid outright or stiffed the driver for the fare in town?

Unbelievable. What I want to know is what he was actually charged with. It says he plead out to 3rd degree assault. Hmm... So he's a violent one they let stroll off... Nice. HOW violent and what was the first charge before pleading down to that one? Every person he hurts in this country from this point on is on their heads. They COULD have called whatever Police Department controls that area (Not sure which city the access road falls into?) and had it CLOSED with a checkpoint immediately. I'm sure low key and cover their butts took priority over public safety though. Idiots!!

Now he's running with nothing to lose. What could possibly go wrong?

All excellent and relevant points, Wrabbit. Thank you!
I think we can chalk this one up as more proof that our officials actually aren't responsible enough to do their jobs right and keep the public safe.

Where could he have gone though? Was he even in a jumpsuit indicating that he was a prisoner? He couldn't have been in street clothes, could he?
Those folks in Denver better remember his face and keep their eyes peeled.

Well, after endless research and long hard time spent investigating the matter....(Actually I just did a google image search and look what popped up?)


I found this shot of Mexican criminal aliens (the story says actual criminals like the Denver Airport guy).

I wish I could say 'Of course, these are law enforcement officers and that was a prisoner. Of course he'd be wearing something to make strolling off unnoticed impossible'. Errr..... You ever had a thing you just kinda wish you didn't find the answer on? lol... Scary, isn't it? I've been in DIA a few times as a major connection point. I wonder who was actually around me that I wasn't aware of? (This was also the Airport that had a full blown violent rape happen right out in full public view....) Not the bastion of security they claim, is it?

Good find!
I guess they want these prisoners to be nice and comfy in street clothes as they're being transferred.

I did a search this morning, but didn't see any updates. I'm truly surprised that they haven't found him by now. It's almost been 24 hours since he slipped out from under their eagle eyes.
I'm wondering what he did to escape. Did he say he had to use the restroom and they just pointed their finger for him to go down the hall and it'll be on his right? Mighty trusting people these ICE agents are.

I guess he should've just gotten on the plane if he's scared of getting shot. He really complicated things and could've been back in his home country by now trying to figure out how to get back into the US.

I just checked for updates on this and I've found nothing.
Has anybody else heard anything?
This guy just up and vanished! Maybe he did find the opening to the underground. At any rate, I hope the men in charge of this escapee are now in the unemployment line.

Maybe on some level they wanted him to escape. Perhaps there was a car there for him.

What was he accused of exactly? N/m I see....misdemeanor 3rd degree assault.

They too 4.5 hours to report it. I think there were may e better plans for him in the works.

Hi, Hadriana!
Aside from him being in the country illegally,

He pleaded guilty in 2008 to misdemeanor third-degree assault and was sentenced to 120 days in jail and two years of probation, according to a Denver County District Attorney spokesperson.

I was also thinking that they helped him to escape for whatever reason.
It's just too bizarre that they wouldn't have had him in handcuffs.
