Officials are looking for an inmate who failed to return to a work release facility in Fort Dodge.
Department of Corrections spokesman Fred Scaletta said in a news release Monday that 23-year-old Jesse Dylan Carlson was placed on escape status Friday. Additional information was not released.
Carlson was transferred to work release from parole supervision at the end of January. He is serving a five-year sentence for a conviction of interference with official acts causing serious injury.
Officials say Carlson has tattoos on his right calf, right forearm, right hand and neck.
