DEQUINCY, LA (KPLC) -

Authorities are searching an area south of DeQuincy Thursday afternoon after a Calcasieu Correctional Center trusty walked away from a work detail.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said 34-year-old Shane Keith Hilton went missing around 2:30 p.m. He was last seen in the area of Marcantel Road and La. 27.

Myers said Hilton is a non-violent offender.

Hilton is 5-foot-8 with short brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing an orange jumpsuit.

Myers said the trusty has multiple tattoos, including the word Hilton on his chest, a woman in a swimsuit on his back and a cross on his left hand.

According to records from the CCC, Hilton was arrested April 6 on charges of direct contempt of court. He is also facing a theft charge.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office at 337-491-3605 or 911.

This is the second time in a week that a CCC trusty has walked away from a work detail. Scottie Carrier walked away from Burton Coliseum on Friday and was captured Saturday afternoon off of Royer Loop in Sulphur.

    Rain chances increase MondayRain chances increase Monday

    By tonight, rain chances will be low. We will start with partly cloudy skies, becoming mostly clear late. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. A few places north of I-10 will be in the 60s. It will still feel muggy overnight, thanks to the humidity. There could be some areas of patchy fog in the early morning hours on Monday. As we go through next week, the big story remains warm temperatures.
