LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) — Prison officials in Massachusetts are searching for an inmate with a limp who walked away from a correctional facility over the weekend.

Essex County Sheriff’s Department says Michael Holmes, of Lynn, left the Lawrence Correctional Alternative Center at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Officials didn’t say how the 46-year-old Holmes managed to leave the pre-release facility.

Officials say Holmes walks with a limp and may be wearing a knee brace. He has been held on $2,000 bail for a larceny charge since June 7.

Holmes is described as white, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with partially balding gray hair and a gray goatee. He has three visible tattoos: a Boston Bruins logo on his upper right arm and a wolf on each arm.
