Livingston Parish sheriff's deputies are searching for an inmate who walked away from his work release job.
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Lori Steele says 30-yeaer-old Tederick Bessie, of Baton Rouge, walked away from Elmer's Chocolate Factory in Ponchatoula at about 6 a.m. Monday.
Bessie is 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighs about 190 pounds, and was last seen wearing a white shirt and blue jeans with white writing on the back pockets.
Bessie is serving time for simple robbery and was set to be released in January 2015.
