DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate has escaped from prison facility in Alabama.

News outlets cite the state Department of Corrections as saying that 29-year-old Billy Harold Anderson III escaped Sunday morning at a work-release facility in Decatur. Authorities said on Monday that he was wearing plain street clothes rather than a prion jumpsuit.

Records show Anderson was sentenced to 18 months in December on a burglary charge from Lauderdale County.

Decatur is northern Alabama roughly 95 miles (150 kilometers) north of Birmingham.
