WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Law enforcement agencies are looking for an inmate who didn't return to his work release facility during the weekend.

The Kansas Department of Corrections says Pete Vazquez was due back from his job with a construction company Saturday evening. He was declared an escapee early Sunday.

Corrections spokesman Jan Lunsford says employers often call the facility to ask that release inmates stay longer. He says somebody called on Vazquez's behalf but it wasn't his work supervisor.

KAKE-TV reports Vazquez was serving a sentence in a Finney County theft case. He had been at the work release facility since early February.
