Facing 15 years in state prison, man furloughed from jail disappears

A Marathon man facing 15 years in prison failed to show up after he was granted a furlough from jail last week in the Florida Keys, and now a manhunt is on for him.

On Nov. 12, Acting Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker sentenced Horkene Cade, 36, to 15 years overall on two felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon while being a convicted felon, failure to register as a career offender and cocaine possession.

The same day, she gave Cade, who was arrested in July, a week out of jail and told him to report back Nov. 17 to await transport to prison. He didn't. On Nov. 18, new warrants were issued for his arrest.

Due to the weapon-related charges and the fact he's facing prison, detectives with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office say that if anyone sees him, don't confront him; call 911.

Cade is black, 6 foot 8 and 260 pounds. He might be in the Florida City area and might be driving a white and tan 1999 Lincoln Continental with a Miami Dolphins tag on it.

If you have information about him but want to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys at (800) 346-TIPS. If a tip leads to an arrest in the case, the caller would be eligible for a cash reward.
