State Prisoner Fails to Return from Crittenden County Furlough

FEBRUARY 5, 2007 - Posted at 7:43 a.m. CST

 

BENTON, AR - A state prisons spokeswoman says authorities are looking for a state work-release inmate who didn't return as scheduled from a weekend furlough.  Spokeswoman Dina Tyler said 33-year-old Tommy D. Hollis was due back at the Benton Unit at 3 p.m. yesterday, but didn't show.

Tyler said Hollis was serving an eight-year sentence from Crittenden County, imposed in 2003, for manufacture, delivery and possession of a controlled substance.  She said Hollis would have been eligible for parole on September 3.

She said the weekend furlough, Hollis's first, allowed him to visit relatives in the town of Proctor in Crittenden County.  Tyler said he checked in as required Saturday evening, but when the family got up yesterday morning, Hollis wasn't in the house.  Tyler said the relatives didn't notify prison officials until about 2:50 p.m. yesterday afternoon.

Tyler said Hollis stands about 5-feet-6 and weighs 195 pounds, has a spiderweb tatooed on the back of each elbow, is missing half of his right thumb, and has a large scar on his forehead.  She said he may be traveling in a gray, four-door 1989 Oldsmobile 88 with damage to the front.
