BETHLEHEM - Barrow County authorities are continuing to search for an inmate who they say escaped from custody by leaving a work crew near Bethlehem.

Sheriff's officials 22-year-old Ross Eugene Hilmo of Auburn was an inmate at the Barrow County Detention Center and was working on a grass-cutting crew when he escaped into a forest Monday afternoon.

Tracking dogs were brought in, but the dogs lost the inmate's scent in the rain that fell that evening. Officials say Hilmo was being held on a drug charge.
