Authorities search for escaped prisoner and Bunnell girlfriend

They're believed to be armed and on the run with a 3-year-old, and traveling in a white Chevy Cobalt with Florida tag number EUJL31. Deputies have asked anyone who sees them to call 911 immediately.

The following is an adapted news release from the Volusia County Sheriff's Office:

Deputies are searching for a convicted robber who was out on work release and failed to return to prison the afternoon of Jan. 22, as well as for his girlfriend, a Bunnell woman believed to be aiding his escape.

Volusia County Sheriff’s investigators have obtained arrest warrants for escapee Gary Bullock Jr., and for Natasha Quigley, both 24. The two are believed to be armed and on the run with a 3-year-old boy.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is assisting in the investigation.

Bullock — who began serving an 8-year prison sentence in February 2010 for multiple felony offenses that included robbery, grand theft, burglary and possession of a controlled substance — was being housed at a work release center in Daytona Beach operated by Tomoka Correctional Institution.

He left the prison facility Friday morning to report to his job at the El Caribe Resort & Conference Center in Daytona Beach Shores. 

On the afternoon of Friday, Jan. 22, Bullock was picked up at work by Quigley, his girlfriend.

Before leaving the hotel, Bullock cut off his ankle monitor and tossed it into the parking lot, and then the two took off in Quigley’s white, 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt with a Florida tag, EUJL31.

The Sheriff’s Office was notified at about 3 p.m. on Friday, after state corrections officials received an alert that Bullock’s GPS monitor had been removed.

Investigators also discovered that before leaving, Quigley stole money, blank checks and a gun from her parents’ home in Palm Coast.

Sheriff’s investigators have obtained warrants charging Bullock with escape, destruction of an electronic monitor and criminal mischief.

He’s 5 foot, 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 173 pounds, and has brown hair, brown eyes and a tattoo on his right arm.

Quigley is facing a charge of aiding escape. She’s 5 foot, 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 175 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who spots either Bullock, Quigley or their vehicle or who has information on their whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately.
