Search underway for inmate who did not return to jail

An inmate, who was supposed to get out of jail in three weeks, is now wanted for escape.

Police tell us Joseph Wilson had been allowed out of the Fayette County Detention Center on a court ordered pass Thursday morning. He was supposed to return to the jail at 3 p.m. Thursday, but never showed up.

Wilson was in jail on a contempt of court charge and was set to be released on December 2.
