Inmate escapes from Md. prison

The Maryland corrections department says an inmate has escaped from a state prison in Hagerstown.

Authorities are looking for 51-year-old Dominic Webster. He's white, 5 feet and 9 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds. He has short, gray hair, a mustache and green eyes. According to court documents, he is from Baltimore.

Maryland State Police say a helicopter is assisting in the search. State troopers from the Hagerstown barracks, a K-9 unit and a high-risk tactical unit also are part of the search effort.

The Maryland Division of Correction says Webster was serving 25 years for multiple counts of robbery with a deadly weapon and handgun use.

Officials noticed he was missing shortly before 11 a.m. Friday. The medium-security prison for men has the capacity for about 2,100 inmates.
