HAMILTON, Ga. (AP) - The Harris County Sheriff’s Department is searching for an escaped inmate.

WTVM-TV (https://bit.ly/1JUTy54) reports law enforcement agencies are looking for 47-year-old Donald Castleberry, who police say did not get on the bus to return to the Georgia Department of Corrections Transitional Center in Troup County Saturday.

Police say Castleberry has been missing for three days and may have a weapon in his possession. Castleberry is serving a sentence for child molestation and theft by taking and bad checks.

Authorities say Castleberry, who works at a poultry processing plant in Pine Mountain, did not return to the transitional center after work. He was last seen in the wooded area behind that processing plant on May 23 around 4:30 p.m.

Inmates who have been released to transitional centers are allowed work release.
