Inmate Missing from Michigan City Prison

An inmate has apparently walked away from the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City.

Prison officials reportedly discovered that Travis Hornett, 39, of Waterloo, was missing from his outside work detail at the prison’s low-security housing unit around 11:00 Wednesday morning, according to the Indiana Department of Correction.

Hornett was serving a five-year sentence for the Level 5 felony of burglary. The DOC says he’s a white male, about five feet, five inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911 and not to approach him.

UPDATE: Hornett was located shortly after midnight on Thursday, July 11th.
