Officials are looking for an escaped inmate.
Authorities in LeFlore County reported Mark S. Bennett missing Friday afternoon.
The warden at the Jim E. Hamilton Correctional Center says he escaped early that morning.
Prison officials say Bennett began serving a 10-year prison sentence in August for possession of cocaine, attempting to elude and destruction of property.
Bennett is described as a white male, 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. He has blond hair, blue eyes and tattoos on both arms and on his right leg.
The warden says he is investigating how Bennett was able to get away and is asking anyone who knows where he is now to call authorities.
