It’s been more than a week since a Bernalillo County jail inmate escaped from University of New Mexico hospital.

There’s still no sign of Valerie Guzman.

Guzman spoke exclusively with KOB Eyewitness News 4 the day after her escape from a friend’s house in Belen.

She told KOB 4 she didn't want to be on the run, and was planning to turn herself in, but that still hasn't happened.

Guzman was hospitalized after she ingested heroin at the jail.

She said her guard fell asleep, so she took off.
