OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are looking for a man who escaped from a work release facility in Ottumwa.
The Iowa Department of Corrections said in a news release Monday that Donald Shawn Fountain, 36, was placed on escape status after he failed to return to the facility from employment on Saturday.
Fountain transferred to work release in September. He has been serving a five-year sentence that began in July 2012 for willful injury causing bodily injury.
Authorities say any information to Fountain's whereabouts should be reported to the Ottumwa Police Department or Wapello County Sheriff's Department.
