MONTICELLO - Florida Department of Corrections search teams and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office are in search of inmate Michael Way (DC# 513930), who escaped from an outside work detail today.

Inmate Way was serving five years at Jefferson Correctional Institution on charges of burglary and grand theft from Hillsborough County. At approximately 3:51 p.m., correctional staff reported that inmate Way was missing. Inmate Way, a minimum custody inmate, had apparently fled on foot from an outside work detail assigned to staff housing.

Inmate Way is 5'6" tall, weighs 149 lbs., has blonde or strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. He has a tattoo of a heart with the initials AT on his right leg. Two DOC canine teams from Wakulla Correctional Institution and Madison Correctional Institution are in pursuit of the inmate. DOC will continue to work with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office until the inmate is captured. Additional details about inmate Way and the status of the search can be found at www.dc.state.fl.us under Inmate Escape Information Search.
