COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A man placed on work release in Council Bluffs has escaped.

The Department of Corrections says that 32-year-old Roger Eugene Madsen was placed on escape status Thursday after failing to return to the Council Bluffs Work Release Facility, a minimum security setting.

Madsen has been serving a 20-year prison sentence with multiple offenses including prohibited acts with controlled substance, two counts of first-degree theft, two counts of voluntary absence, assault with the intent of injury on a peace officer and assault with a weapon on a peace officer.

Madsen was transferred to work release on Jan. 5 and his sentence began in October 2009.

Anyone with information about Madsen’s whereabouts should report to the Council Bluffs Police Department of the Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Department.
