LEBANON, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in central Pennsylvania are searching for a prisoner they say escaped while on work release.

It happened Monday while 25-year-old Christopher Carno Benjamin Jr. was working at Terre Hill Concrete Products in West Cornwall Township. Police say he took off without warning and hasn’t been seen since.

Police say the Lancaster resident was last seen inside of Terre Hill’s building.

Benjamin is an inmate at the Lebanon County Correctional Facility.

It’s unclear what Benjamin was imprisoned for.
