TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Law enforcement officers are looking for a state prisoner who walked away from a work release program in Shawnee County.

Department of Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay says 25-year-old David Kerth escaped Sunday morning. He is described as 5-feet-10-inches tall and about 200 pounds, with short brown hair and hazel eyes. No further details about how he escaped were released.

WIBW reports (http://bit.ly/14Fdt0n ) that Kerth was jailed in 2007 for a Douglas County robbery and entered the state corrections system for a 2012 probation violation. He was working at a Shawnee County processing plant as part of a state work release program.

The county is responsible for transporting work release inmates to and from their work.
