ASHEBORO, N.C. — Law enforcement officials are searching for an inmate who escaped Wednesday night from the Randolph Correctional Center in Asheboro, according to an N.C. Department of Public Safety press release.

Jonathan Henderson, 28, is serving a five-month sentence for selling drugs and was expected to be released in September from the minimum-security prison.

NC Public Safety officials believe Henderson escaped over a fence around 8 or 9 p.m. They say it is also possible that he was picked up in a car by his girlfriend.

Anyone with information about Henderson’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Randolph Correctional Center at (336) 625-2578.
