Donavan Gil Mendia and Iverson Chewek are both being charged with Felony Escape, as a 3rd Degree Felony.

According to Major Antone Aguon of the Department of Corrections, around 10:13 Friday night, Mendia was reported missing from the Mangilao facility.

Moreover, according to an official magistrates report, Chewek, who was also in custody at DOC had also escaped.

Court documents stated that the pair were discovered missing when a headcount was conducted on Friday night.

Their orange DOC shirts were discovered during a check of the vicinity on barbed wire, and an opening at the bottom of the fence line was also discovered.

According to court documents, Chewek was located by DOC’s Special Operations Response Team on the roadway outside the facility by Route 10 and Leyang Road in Barrigada.

The Guam Police Department assisted in the search of the escapees, and were able to locate Mondia by the First Church of God in Barrigada at around 11:49PM.
