Edinburgh - Police are searching for an inmate that escaped from the Edinburgh Correctional Facility Saturday morning.

Prison officials say they determined Dustin Smith, 27, wasn't present after a routine count at noon. A search of the facility was conducted and Smith was not found.

As part of the search, an officer went to the Johnson County Park where Smith had worked, and searched the area. The officer discovered a lock cut on a garage and a county van missing. Police say Smith, who is from Danville, is presumed to be using the van, a teal 1996 Plymouth Voyager with license plate number 77513.

Smith is described as a 5'9" white male with a shaved head and brown eyes with several tattoos on his face, the back of his head, his upper back and his arms. He has been incarcerated at the prison since November 2007.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or a local law enforcement agency.
