MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa — Marshall County authorities are looking for an inmate who escaped from the work release facility in Marshalltown.

The Iowa Department of Corrections says Michael Compston didn’t return to the facility Sunday night.

Copmston was originally sentenced to 10 years in prison in April 2006 for robbery, but he was transferred to the work-release program following a parole violation earlier this year.

He is described as being 6-feet-tall, weighing 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Compston has a tattoo on his neck and piercings in both ears and on his left eyebrow.

If you see Compston, you are asked to contact the Marshalltown Police Department or the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.
