Police are searching for a Fayette County jail inmate who failed to return from a court-ordered pass Thursday.
Joseph Wilson had just three weeks left to serve for a contempt of court charge when he absconded, according to a news release.
Wilson, 42, was released at 11 a.m. Thursday and was scheduled to return at 3 p.m.
He is 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. He was pictured in his jail mug shot wearing a neck brace, but he no longer needs it, the release said.
