With less than a month left on his sentence, Jacob Aflleje escaped from a work detail at Camp Atterbury Monday.

State correctional officials say they haven’t located a prisoner who escaped from a work crew Monday afternoon.  Jacob Aflleje was due to be released from his ten-year sentence for arson in less than a month when he was reported missing.

Aflleje had been imprisoned at the Edinburgh minimum security prison and was working at the prison’s facility on the Camp Atterbury military base at the time of his escape.

Aflleje is white, with short black hair and brown eyes.  He stands 5 ft. 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 170 lbs. He has several noticeable tattoos, including Asian symbols of unknown meaning on both hands.

Authorities believe Aflleje may have stolen a black 1998 Chevrolet Blazer with Indiana license plate XE6590.
