Inmate escapes Graves County Jail


A Graves County Jail inmate escaped on foot Sunday morning.

Local law enforcement is looking for Darius Harrison, a 26-year-old Mayfield native. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, brown pants and tennis shoes and heading north on Sixth Street in Mayfield.

Harrison was working in the jail shortly after 7 a.m. when he found an open door and left the premises, authorities said.

Deputies immediately noticed him missing and contacted the appropriate agencies. A search that morning using officers, deputies and canine units was unable to locate Harrison.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Mayfield Police Department at 270-247-1981 or Graves County Jail at 270-257-4373.
