Authorities in Victoria, Texas arrested the mother of an inmate accused of escaping from the Clemens Unit in Brazoria.

Victoria police said 39-year-old Robert Yancy Jr.’s mother was driving the same white Nissan her son was last seen in after he escaped from prison on Sunday afternoon.

Officers reportedly pulled Yancy’s mother over at a traffic light shortly before 8:30 p.m. Sunday, though the escapee was nowhere to be found.

Police said she was taken into custody for an outstanding felony warrant related to Yancy’s escape from prison.

Yancy is currently serving a life sentence without parole after he was convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child out of Victoria County.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said he was last seen at approximately 3:38 p.m. at the facility on Highway 36.

According to a release by the TDCJ, he was last seen in a white 2021 Nissan Versa with license plate number DNR-9145. He was wearing a black beanie and a black sweater.

If you see Yancy, authorities say you should not approach him. Instead, call 911.
