Officials: Iowa inmate left work release facility

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa officials are looking for an inmate accused of leaving his work release facility.

The state Department of Corrections says 54-year-old Robert Lee Garrett was placed on escape status Friday after he failed to return to a Fort Des Moines work release facility from an authorized appointment. Additional information was not released.

Garret is serving a 54-year sentence on various convictions, including first-degree robbery and domestic assault. He began his sentence in 1990 and was transferred to work release in November.
