The Iron County Sheriff's Office is looking for an inmate who left for an approved medical appointment, only to write himself a prescription for escape.
Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Del Schlosser said Tuesday that James Allen Logan, 33, of Houston, Texas, was released from the Iron County Correctional Facility last Friday for a doctor's visit, on condition he return to his cell by 6 p.m. that day.
Logan, who was behind bars on a drug possession count, did not return. A subsequent search of the area by deputies failed to turn up any trace of him. However, Schlosser said, investigators believe he may be in the Las Vegas area.
