Authorities continue their search today for a Muscogee County Prison inmate who walked off his work detail Monday.
Randall Sheppard, 24, was on a cleaning detail at the Woodruff Farm Soccer Center around 9:30 a.m. when he walked toward a nearby woodline and disappeared, Warden Bill Adamson.
There have been no sightings since his disappearance, the warden added.
“In this man’s case, it’s local and it’s very likely he’s still in the area,” Adamson said, adding that Sheppard likely is being helped.
Never miss a local story.
Sheppard is white, 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds. He has blonde hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a white inmate uniform that has a blue stripe down the pants legs, a blue collar and a blue line down the front of the shirt, Strong said.
Sheppard has a Plateau Drive address in Columbus, Adamson said.
