DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an inmate has been listed as escaped from the work release facility in Des Moines.

The Iowa Corrections Department says 30-year-old Samuel Washington Jr. didn’t return to the facility as required Monday night. He’d been transferred there on July 28.

The department says Washington is serving time for domestic abuse assault, third or subsequent offense, in Polk County.
