Authorities are searching for an inmate who escaped from a Savannah prison.

Officials say Dana C. Ross, 36, escaped from Coastal Transitional Center, a minimum security prison located in Savannah, on March 28. He has prior convictions for fleeing, obstruction, and drug related crimes.

Ross is known to frequent the Evans and Tattnall County areas. Based on prior convictions and charges, authorities say Ross should be considered dangerous and should not be approached.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ross should contact their local law enforcement immediately or Investigator Virgil Deloach at the Evans County Sheriff's Office at 912.739.1611.
