Authorities are looking for an inmate who escaped from a Central Oregon prison. KTVZ-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1neAnci) the inmate was from the Deer Ridge Correctional Institution, a 7-year-old minimum-security prison near Madras. He was identified as 31-year-old Clinton Orvill Swearingen, reported missing Sunday night. The prison said he was most likely wearing jeans and a T-shirt with the word "inmate" and a Department of Corrections logo. But Sheriff Jim Adkins said Monday he may have changed clothes and left the area. Swearingen is described as white, 5-feet-6, 140 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. An SUV stolen not far from the prison was found later, abandoned in Madras. A search of the town turned up no trace. Swearingen was serving time on theft and burglary convictions in Linn County.
