Juneau police are still looking for a 39-year-old man who walked away from a Juneau halfway house earlier this month.
Police say Derek McMillan left Gastineau Human Services Halfway House on Aisek Street on Jan. 3.
He reportedly ran to Glacier Highway in the direction of Grants Plaza.
Police say McMillian left the facility against staff instructions. He had possibly taken drugs in a bathroom.
McMillian’s criminal history in Alaska and Florida includes drug offenses, robbery, vehicle theft, and assault, according to police. His nickname is “Kilo.”
Police describe him as 6 feet tall, about 225 pounds, and Hispanic. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a green sweatshirt and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
Police say if you see McMillan, do not approach him. Instead, contact the Juneau Police Department immediately at 586-0600, or the Juneau Crime Line website.
