Authorities are still looking for an inmate who escaped from St. Mary's Regional Medical Center Thursday evening, while getting treatment.
Authorities responded to the Reno Hospital just after 5:00 in the afternoon, looking for the prisoner who escaped, when he asked to use the restroom.
He is 19-year-old Nicholas Edward Sanchez. Hospital officials say, despite the escape, Sanchez never posed a threat to patients.
The Sheriff's Despartment says Sanchez was facing misdemeanor drug charges, but could now be charged with felony escape charges.
