(Ogden-AP) -- The search continues today for a state inmate who escaped while on work detail.

Little Joseph Grim walked away from job site at the Weber County Landfill in Ogden yesterday.

The 33-year-old inmate has been in the prison system since a year ago November. He was serving sentences at the Weber County Jail for burglary and possession of a controlled substance.

Corrections spokesman Jack Ford says Grim is five-foot-eleven, 180 pounds, and has green eyes and brown hair.

Anyone with information about Grim is asked to call the Department of Corrections at 576-7001 or your local law enforcement office.

The pardons board had scheduled Grim's release for July 13th. But he faces new escape charges once he's back in custody.
