(NECN: Deanna Morgan) - The man who took hostages at Hillary Clinton's Presidential campaign office is on the loose.

Authorities say Leeland Eisenberg escapes from a minimum security correctional facility in Manchester on Sunday.

The 52-year-old fugitive is not considered armed.

He spent about two years behind bars for the 2007 incident at Clinton's campaign office in Rochester, NY.

Eisenberg claimed to have a bomb, leading to a five-hour standoff.

In 2010, he was sentenced to at least three and a half years in prison for probation violations.

He would have been eligible for parole in August.
