DES MOINES, Iowa — The Department of Corrections says an inmate has escaped from a Des Moines work release center.

The agency says 26-year-old Abel Joshua Aguilar failed to return from his job to the Fort Des Moines Work Release Facility on Wednesday. He was transferred to the work release site in May.

Aguilar was convicted of intimidation with a dangerous weapon, theft and assault on a correctional employee. He began his sentence in June 2006. The offenses were committed in Polk and Webster counties.

Information about Aguilar should be reported to Des Moines police and the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
