The mental health facility he escaped from seems to be a private entity, but mentions treating military on its web page. I'm guessing it has a contract with the USAF or DoD. Going by this article and another one I read some place, it appears when he took off the facility notified civilian police in NM and/or TX, and the Texas cops found him, gave him to the NM police, who returned him to the facility. This seemed to have happened fairly quickly, he wasn't on the run for weeks. Maybe just a day or two.
So given all the other SNAFUs in this guy's history, I wonder if the facility ever reported to the USAF that he escaped? That's a detail I would run down if I were a reporter, or the investigator assigned by Mattis looking into how this guy never got entered into the NICS and all that.
