An inmate reported missing last week from the Yankton Community Work Center remains at large.

Inmate Vance Orth remains on escape status, according spokesman Michael Winder with the South Dakota Department of Corrections.

Orth left the Yankton trustee unit Nov. 1.

He is 27 years old, 5-foot-8, 145 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Orth is serving Minnehaha County sentences for third-degree burglary and possession of a controlled substance.

The public is asked to contact law enforcement if Orth is seen, if you know his location or have any other information.
