The Iowa Department of Corrections is looking for a man who failed to return to the Waterloo Work Release Facility on Thursday.

Fred Scaletta, spokesman for the DOC, says 34-year-old Shawn Washington didn't return to the facility after work.

Washington, who began a 35-year sentence for intimidation with a dangerous weapon and ongoing criminal conduct on August 10, 2005, was transferred from parole to work release on February 13, 2013, and is now considered an escapee.

Washington is an African-American male with brown hair and brown eyes. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 208 pounds.

If you see Washington, contact the Waterloo Police Department or the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office.
