prison command centerIONIA, Ionia County – Officials say the search for an escaped inmate in Ionia County has been called off.

On September 3 Search teams were looking in the area of M-21 and Bellamy that is west of M-66 and north of 96.

The Michigan Department of Corrections tells FOX 17 that the warden notified the staff that there was a person hitchhiking in an orange vest on M-21.  When the person was approached, he took off running.

All of the Ionia County prisons conducted a head count and determined that no one was missing.
