CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities are looking for a South Carolina inmate they say walked away from a coastal pre-release center in Charleston.

South Carolina corrections spokesman Clark Newsom said late Thursday that 21-year-old Travis Hammet was reported missing after the facility's 9:30 p.m. inmate count. Newsom said Hammet was serving time for a second-degree burglary conviction. He is up for parole this year and was to have served his maximum sentence by 2015.

Authorities ask that anyone with information call (803) 896-2258.
