MAYFIELD – Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 1 are searching for a Calloway County inmate who left a work release program in Graves County on Monday.
In a news release, Post 1 Public Affairs Officer Adam Jones said that it was at about 7:15 a.m. Monday that an inmate from the Calloway County Jail, Brian A. Ferryman, 39, of Calvert City, reportedly walked away from a candle factory in Mayfield, where he had been placed on work release.
