SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Authorities with the South Dakota Department of Corrections are looking for an inmate who didn’t return to the Sioux Falls Community Work center as scheduled. They said Garang Majok went to his work release job in Sioux Falls Tuesday and didn’t return to the prison as scheduled. He has been placed on escape status.

Majok is 27 years old. He is serving concurrent sentences for third-degree simple assault and failure to appear from Minnehaha County.

If anyone has seen Majok or knows where he is, they’re being asked to contact law enforcement.
