Clinton Office Hostage Taker Missing From NH Unit

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a New Hampshire man who took hostages at a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign office in 2007 has vanished from his correctional facility.

The state Department of Corrections tells WMUR-TV that Leeland Eisenberg missed a head count Sunday afternoon at the Calumet (kal-yoo-MEHT’) Transitional Housing Unit in Manchester.

Eisenberg was sentenced in May 2010 to 3 ½ to 7 years for probation violations. The station reports that he would have been eligible for parole in August.

Authorities say the 52-year-old Eisenberg isn’t considered armed.

He spent about two years behind bars for the November 2007 siege at Clinton’s Rochester campaign office in which he claimed to have a bomb. No one was hurt in a five-hour standoff and the bomb turned out to be road flares.
