SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Northwestern Iowa officials are looking for a prisoner who failed to return to a work release facility in Sioux City.

Officials say 30-year-old Caleb Robert Babb was placed on escape status after failing to return to the facility Friday after working his job.

Babb, who was nine years into a 10-year sentence for second-degree robbery, had been transferred to work release on May 29.

Officials are asking anyone with information on Babb's whereabouts to report it to the Sioux City Police Department or Woodbury County Sheriff's Department.
