HUNTINGTON — Authorities are searching for an inmate who escaped from a work release program in Huntington.

The West Virginia Division of Corrections tells media outlets that 41-year-old Thomas Lee Dunn left his job at a Huntington restaurant after he took out the trash late Sunday night.

A warrant for felony escape was issued early Monday morning.

Dunn was serving a sentence for daytime burglary and obtaining money by false pretense charges in Mercer County.

More details as they become available.
