A Mississippi inmate named Kurtis Elkins escaped during transport from Benton County to Marshall County.
While traveling back, the inmate told a state corrections officer that they needed to use the restroom.
When the MDOC employee pulled over to the side of Highway 4 near the Benton/Marshall County line, the inmate ran off.
Elkins is around 6 feet, 200 pounds, wearing a black shirt, blue jeans, and handcuffs.
He was last seen running from Highway 4 toward Snow Lake Shores.
