National/World

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) – Sheriff’s deputies in Ohio are searching for a corrections center inmate who escaped custody after being transported for hospital treatment.

Warren County sheriff’s deputies were called Wednesday night to the Community Corrections Center for a report of an inmate who had escaped custody of corrections center staff at Atrium Medical Center in Middletown.

The sheriff’s office says 31-year-old Robert Langford was last seen running away in a hospital gown. It wasn’t clear why he was taken to the hospital.

A hospital spokeswoman says he hadn’t been treated by any hospital staff.

Langford was sentenced to the corrections center after being convicted of drug offenses.
