California inmate escaped

Mount Shasta, Calif. -- A state prison inmate working in Shasta City on Wednesday escaped.

Lepaul Gardner was last seen around 3 p.m. yesterday, working with the Intermountain Conservation Camp crew on McCloud Avenue.

He's a white man, five-six, weighing 130-pounds. He was wearing all orange, but may have grey sweat pants on. Gardner also has a bad limp in one leg and may be carrying a green bag.

If you see him, do not approach him -- call 911.
