A headcount was conducted last Wednesday, July 19, while the workline was waiting for all parties involved in the project to arrive on site, and Reyes was determined to be missing.
Deputies in the Sheriff Division Special Operations Fugitive Unit located Reyes in Nanakuli at 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 27. How she escaped remains under investigation.
Reyes is serving time for Promoting a Dangerous Drug 3, Prohibited Acts Related to Drug Paraphernalia, and Bail Jumping 1.
Her sentence end date is Feb. 15, 2018. She now faces an additional escape charge.
