A multi-county manhunt is underway after a Harrison County inmate worker escaped while on an assignment late Saturday.

At around 11:00 p.m., Gary Lynn Gorman, 36, was assigned to an inside jail workers position and had access to many areas of the jail. When Gorman was taking out trash to some dumpsters, the inmate walked out with a sack of trash with the crew and did not return.

Gorman has connections in Dallas, Gregg, Upshur, and Marion Counties. Law enforcement in those areas have been notified to be aware of escapee.
