Authorities are looking for a 22-year-old man who escaped from a work release program at about 10 a.m. Monday, an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said.

Thomas L. Bailey left Industrial Fabrications at 2001 Airline Highway, and has not been seen since, Casey Rayborn Hicks said.

Bailey is white, thin, 6 feet tall and 155 pounds, Hicks said. Bailey was wearing blue jeans, a tan shirt and a tan hat when he fled.

Hicks said Bailey is from Rayville and was serving time on a drug charge.
