Search on for inmate who walked out of IN prison

Charles AdamsAuthorities in Indiana are searching for a 28-year-old man who walked out of a correctional facility in Pendleton Sunday night.

Charles Adams was discovered missing around 9:15 p.m. during a routine check. Prison officials said Adams crawled out of a dorm window at the minimum security facility, which is housed outside the walls of a maximum security facility.

Adams is a white male who stands approximately 5’11” tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He has brown hair, blue eyes and prominent tattoos on his face and neck.

Adams was serving time for theft, receiving stolen property and battery of bodily waste, and was due to be released next October.

Prison officials did not say whether Adams should be considered dangerous, but noted that any escape – regardless of the inmate involved – should be taken seriously.
