DECATUR, Alabama — Authorities are searching for an Alabama inmate they say escaped from a work release center in the southeast part of the state.

The Alabama Department of Corrections said in a statement early Monday that Tyler Russell Baird escaped from the Decatur Work Release Center in Decatur around 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

State officials say Baird had been serving time for discharging a gun at an occupied building or vehicle.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about Baird's whereabouts to call their local law enforcement agency, the work release center or the Alabama Department of Corrections.
