ORIENT, Ohio - An inmate walked away from his work detail at the Pickaway Correctional Institution dairy barn Friday night and remained at large early Saturday, the State Highway Patrol said.

Jason R. Spires, 24, of Otway, is about a year into a two-year sentence for breaking and entering, possession of criminal tools and unauthorized use of a vehicle, said Sgt. Aaron Quinn at the patrol's Circleville post.

Spires escaped from the central Ohio prison about 7 p.m. Friday wearing blue coveralls over khaki pants and a khaki shirt and brown boots. He is 5-foot-8, weighs 160 pounds and has brown hair, blue eyes and a goatee.

Orient is 15 miles southwest of Columbus.
