Further Update on Dustin Costa

The last I'd heard of Dustin's whereabouts was ten days ago, right after he was summarily removed from the Kern County Jail in Bakersfield and transported to an 'undisclosed location' within the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Over the week-end, I used their locator; it informed me he was at a Federal Transfer Center (FTC) near the Oklahoma City Airport. When another search last night came up with the same info, I addressed a short note to that location, but before I could go out to mail it this morning, he called to tell me he has been in Texas for a week, at a prison somewhere near Midland and that I should receive a letter from him today or tomorrow. The good news is that it is not a high security facility and his physical surroundings and the amenities available to him have improved a great deal over the county jails he'd been confined to in California; the bad news is that he is in Texas, far away from friends and family. We didn't have long to talk, but he said that now that he has received telephone approval, he will have reasonable access to a phone and will call me again in a few days. He would also welcome mail from any who care to write, so as soon as I have a reliable mailing address, I'll post it here (the BOP locator still has him in Oklahoma and didn't list 'Midland' as a location).
