LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prison officials say they're looking for an inmate who walked away from a minimum-custody work camp in rural northeast Nevada.
The Nevada Department of Corrections said Wednesday that 37-year-old Jeremy Bryson was reported missing following a Tuesday evening inmate count at the Pioche (pee-OH'-sh) Conservation Camp.
Records show that Bryson was sentenced in August to 3 to 7½ years in state prison after pleading guilty to burglary in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas.
He served a previous prison term after a 2013 felony theft conviction in Las Vegas.
Prison officials describe Bryson as 5-foot-10, with blue eyes, brown hair, a medium build and multiple tattoos.
They say he might be headed south on Highway 93 toward Las Vegas, 180 miles away.
