Missoula Police are searching for an inmate who walked away from the Missoula Correctional Facility's Pre-Release Center.

Security Chief Craig Daymude said Tyler Brusell, 19, did not return to the center from his place of employment on Monday evening.

"Tyler Brusell is a 19 year-old white male, about six-feet three inches tall, weighing about 170 pounds," Daymude said. "Because he was serving a three year sentence out of Flathead County for criminal possession of dangerous drugs, he may have attempted to travel to that area. If you do see him, contact law enforcement immediately."

Daymude said Brusell may face a charge of felony escape after he is apprehended.
