PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Police are searching for a 25-year-old inmate who walked away from a minimum-security prison in Pierre.
William Vandervier failed to return to the Rapid City Minimum Unit on Monday afternoon. State officials say he had been searching for a work-release job.
Vandervier was sentenced in March 2011 to four years in prison for possession of marijuana. People with information are asked to call law enforcement.
