Lauderdale County authorities are searching for an escaped inmate.

Deputies said 43-year-old Terry Wayne Myers escaped from the Lauderdale County Detention Center. Investigators said he escaped through the ventilation system.

He is 5'7" tall, weighs 160 pounds, has green eyes and a bald head and has a clown tattoo on his neck. Myers was last seen wearing a green jumpsuit.

According to investigators, Myers was locked up after escaping from work release in March.

This is the second time in eight months inmates have escaped from this facility through the ventilation system. In September of 2012, three inmates got out that way.

If you see Myers, call your local police or the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Office.
