BOLEY, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says an inmate at the John Lilley Correctional Center in Boley has escaped.

Prison officials say 24-year-old Christopher Rowe apparently walked away from the minimum security prison on Wednesday and is now considered armed and dangerous.

Rowe was serving seven year sentences for Tulsa County convictions that include possession of explosives by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of methamphetamine.

Rowe is described as white, about 6-feet-1-inch tall and 160 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and several tattoos, including "Life & Death" on his hands and "In Loving Memory of Charlie Rowe" on his neck.
