MONTGOMERY — A state inmate serving a burglary sentence from Etowah County has escaped from a work facility in south Alabama, days after being denied parole.

The Department of Corrections said 50-year-old Rodney James Hall was unaccounted for after a bed roster count shortly before midnight Sunday at the Elba Work Release Center in Coffee County.

Hall is a community custody inmate and was allowed potential employment outside the facility, spokesman Brian Corbett of the Department of Corrections said Monday morning.

Hall is white and 5 feet 11 inches tall. He weighs 185 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

He was sentenced in Etowah County on May 24, 2004, to a 25-year prison term after his conviction on burglary and theft charges. He was denied parole Wednesday and rescheduled for a hearing in September 2015.

His sentence is scheduled to expire in January 2029.

People with information about Hall's whereabouts are asked to call local law enforcement.
