Convict on the Run

MOUNDSVILLE – The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department is searching for an individual who failed to return to the Northern Regional Jail after being out on a work release program.

Marshall County Sheriff Kevin Cecil said Derek W. Midcap, 32, was being held in the jail on a conviction for burglary and grand larceny. He was permitted to leave the facility on a work release program, but did not report back to the jail Thursday.

Midcap is described as a 5 foot 8 inch, 180 pound white male with blue eyes and brown hair. He also has a tattoo of his son on his upper right shoulder. Cecil said following his failure to return to jail, a bench warrant was issued for Midcap’s arrest.

Anyone with information about Midcap’s location or anyone who may have seen him over the weekend is asked to call the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at 304-843-1500 or the local law enforcement agency in the area where he may have been spotted.
