He is 6 feet tall, with brown hair and brown eyes. He weighs 185 pounds. Officials say he was last seen wearing a navy blue pants, a black and white Adidas shirt and black shoes. Cantrell has a tattoo of a clown on his left shoulder.

He had previously filed complaints against the Nevada Corrections Department, claiming they had violated his civil rights. That suit was dismissed in 2011.
