MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities are searching for a North Dakota inmate who didn’t return to jail after going to his authorized work.

Authorities on Tuesday said 28-year-old Thomas Bott was in work-release status when he failed to return to the Ward County Jail Monday afternoon. Bott is now in “escape” status.

Bott was in jail for a probation violation resulting from a burglary conviction.

Bott is described as a white male with blonde hair and blue eyes. He is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs approximately 165 pounds.

Authorities ask that people with information about Bott’s whereabouts contact the Ward County sheriff’s office.
