A DOC news release says 39-year-old Christopher Jacobs was discovered missing around 10 a.m. Saturday.
The department says other inmates told investigators Jacobs walked away from the unfenced prison and got into a vehicle that then left the area.
Jacobs was serving a five year sentence for grand larceny, burglary, false impersonation, possession of stolen property and vehicle theft.
