AMES, Iowa — Authorities say they're looking for a man who failed to return from a work release assignment in central Iowa.
The state Department of Corrections says 24-year-old Nelson Messiah Humes was placed on escape status Saturday. He is accused of failing to return to the Curt Forbes Residential Center in Ames from a work release assignment.
Hume was on parole supervision before being transferred to work release in August. He is serving time for a conviction of willful injury causing bodily injury and first-degree theft.
