MIDLAND COUNTY - The search continues for a man who escaped from the Midland County Jail. 

Officials are looking for 32-year-old Fabian Nava. 

Officials tell NewsWest 9 that jailers and working inmates were passing out food trays around 6:45 a.m. Friday morning and that's when Nava managed to avoid detection and escaped over a fence while a jailer was distracted.

We're told that Nava was being held on charges of family violence with bodily injury, along with giving officers a fake name.

Right now, he was being held in jail on drug charges. He also has charges pending with immigration.

Officials are telling the public not to attempt to apprehend Nava.

If you have any information, contact the Midland County Sheriff's Office at (432) 688-4660 or Midland Crimestoppers at (432) 694-TIPS.
