Jeremy Pruitt-Akins, wanted by Dawson County Sheriff's Office after not reporting back to detention center from work release

DAWSON CO, Ga (CBS46) -- An inmate out on work release did not return to custody Sunday afternoon, and authorities think he is headed out of state. And they don't think he's alone.

The Dawson County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Jeremy Pruitt-Akins was expected back to the Dawson County Detention Center at the end of his Sunday afternoon shift.

They believe Pruitt-Akins is on a bus bound for Colorado. They are not certain if he went to the bus station in Gainsville or Atlanta.

Investigators think he is with a 27-year-old woman named Lea Marie Nichole Propst. 

If you see Pruitt-Akins, call the Dawson County Sheriff's Office at 706-344-3636.
