LEXINGTON, Kentucky — The Kentucky Department of Corrections says an inmate has walked away from a minimum-security facility in Lexington.

A statement says 42-year-old Richard Shell was confirmed missing shortly before 9 a.m. on Tuesday from Blackburn Correctional Complex.

Shell was serving a 16-year sentence after being convicted in Laurel County on charges that include receiving stolen property. He would have been eligible for parole in 2018.

Shell is described as a 6-foot, 200-pound, white male with strawberry blond hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police at 502-227-2221 or 859-258-3600.
