Age-progression image released of man wanted in 30-year-old Ohio prison break


Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine released an age-progression image of a man wanted in a prison break from 30 years ago. 

Gordon Lambert, of Cuyahoga County, was 32 years old when he broke out of the Orient Correctional Institution in Pickway County in 1987. 

He was serving a 6 to 25-year sentence for aggravated robbery and felonious assault on a police officer. 

A forensic artist with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation created the current image of Lambert, who would now be 63 years old. 

“This man has an extensive criminal history, and he should be considered armed and dangerous,” said Attorney General DeWine. “Our forensic artist created this image to give residents an idea of what he might look like today, and we urge everyone to take a very good look. He has ties to Cleveland and Florida, but he could be living anywhere.”

Gordon Lambert is 5’9″ and has blue eyes. He had brown hair at the time of his escape, although it may be gray today. He may be going by a different name.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Gordon Lambert should not approach him. Those with information should call the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 866-4WANTED (866-492-6833). The task force is offering a reward for information leading to his arrest.
