A Gila County inmate went missing Tuesday afternoon after fleeing a Taco Bell in Globe, authorities said.
The inmate, 24-year-old Roy Reyes, was at a Taco Bell on the east side of Globe with two Gila County sheriff's employees when he disappeared, Sheriff John Armer said.
Reyes was serving as a county-jail trustee on a maintenance detail, Armer said.
