The search continues this for a Fayette County inmate who did not return to jail after getting a court ordered pass.

20-year-old Joshua Johnson was supposed to return to the Fayette County Detention Center around seven Wednesday night, but he never showed up.

He was released on a medical pass at noon Wednesday.

Johnson was in jail on a probation violation and contempt of court. He's now facing escape charges.

    Who knows and who cares. The Louisville media makes fun of Lexington and the criminals that are there. People are right, if you want to do a crime and get away with it, go to Lexington... they are dumb hillbillies there!

    Im tired of hearing of all these inmates escaping in Lexington at the local jail or Blackburn... if your a criminal come to Lexington, its the easiest place to walk away from and to not return! Build a fence around Blackburn dummies!! This Joshua Johnson is a scumbag... what he did, to be put in jail....
