HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - At last check, state corrections officers have not located Robert Lumpkin.  The inmate reportedly walked away from his detail with the Mississippi Department of Transportation Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities said the 38-year-old Lumpkin disappeared sometime before 4:30.

Authorities said he was last seen wearing state issued-green and white striped pants and a white shirt with "MDOC Convict" printed on the back.

According to the Mississippi Department of Corrections website, Lumpkin began serving a 12-and-a-half year sentence for burglary in October, 2012.  He was assigned a work detail in May, and relocated to the state's satellite facility on 8th Avenue in Gulfport.

If you spot the missing convict, call 911 immediately.
