Update – 

FERRIDAY, La. — A former Concordia Parish Corrections Facility I employee was arrested Monday and is charged with malfeasance in office after authorities say he “knowingly confirmed an incorrect head count of a prison dorm which resulted in a delay of CPCF  I officials identifying missing inmates.”

Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office officials said Wednesday the three inmates, Ryan McKinney, 31, from Springfield, Louisiana; Carlos Ramos, 25, from Winnfield, Louisiana; and Thor N. Teal, 32, from Walker, Louisiana, still have not been located.
