    • On Thursday, October 11, 2018, Martin Costello fled from the New Mexico Men’s Recovery Academy, located at 1000 Main Street Los Lunas, NM. Costello was last seen in the area of Emilio Lopez near Los Lunas High School, which led to a lock down at Los Lunas High School and Katherine Gallegos Elementary school as a precautionary measure. Costello is Hispanic, 5 ft. 10 in. tall, and weighs approximately 180 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. Costello was last seen wearing black denim pants with a long sleeve black t-shirt. Costello should be considered dangerous.
