Escaped Inmate Last Seen in Augusta Area


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Authorities are searching for a 25-year-old inmate who escaped from a north-central Kansas jail.

Joseph Mosier was being held at the Osborne County Detention Center on charges from Sedgwick County.

The Sedgwick County sheriff’s office says Mosier escaped sometime over the weekend from the fenced-in exercise yard at the Osborne facility. His disappearance wasn’t noticed until a head count at 10 p.m. Sunday.

He was last seen Monday afternoon in the Augusta area of Butler County, where he has friends and family. Authorities believe Mosier stole a truck in Osborne that was found Monday in Augusta, as well as a dark blue 1996 Ford Thunderbird that was stolen in Augusta.

Mosier was charged in Sedgwick County with burglary, criminal damage to property, attempted theft and parole violations.
