Search for Missing Inmate Continues in Farmington


Farmington, MO – Searchers are still looking inside and outside of the Farmington Correctional Center for an inmate who went missing Friday.

Nicholas Stillman was serving a five-year sentence for rape; he'd been at the Farmington center since November.

It's the same complex serial rapist Thomas Ingrassia escaped two years ago, but Stillman was in a different area. Ingrassia was being held at the mental health center where Missouri confines sexually violent predators.

Search dogs picked up the scent of a missing inmate outside the complex, but associate superintendent Pat Smith said the search continues inside and outside the 110-acre, medium-security complex.

Stillman is a 5-foot 4-inch, 170-pound, balding white man with brown eyes. He has a teardrop-shaped tattoo under his left eye.
