CORALVILLE (AP) — A 37-year-old inmate has been listed as escaped from the Iowa work release facility in Coralville.

The Iowa Corrections Department said Friday that Michael Wright didn’t return from his job on Thursday. He’d been transferred to the Coralville facility on June 16.

The department says Wright’s prison time began July 27, 2010. He was convicted on two counts of domestic abuse and two of violating a protection order.
