NOBLEBORO, Maine — Police in Midcoast Maine continued to search over the weekend for a convicted felon who apparently escaped from a Portland halfway house.

Wayne Collamore, 60, apparently walked away from the unsecured halfway house late last month and was last spotted in the Lincoln County town of Nobleboro on June 3. Collamore had several months left on a federal sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon.

The U.S. Marshals Service has described Collamore as dangerous and has a history of hiding in woods, breaking into vacant homes and stealing vehicles.

He has an extensive criminal record dating back to the 1970s for such crimes as burglary and theft. Collamore also has been convicted four times of trying to escape custody.

Collamore is described as a white male with gray hair, hazel eyes and a mustache. He weighs about 180 pounds and was last seen wearing either a brown button down shirt and jeans or a gray sweatsuit, police said.

According to the Maine State Bureau of Identification, Collamore has tattoos trailing down his arms of a wizard, a wolf, a parachute, a snake and a dagger.

People with information about Collamore’s whereabouts should contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 882-7332, the Maine State Police at 800-452-4664 or the U.S. Marshals Service at 632-7553.
