WARREN, Maine — Multiple agencies were searching for a man from the Belfast area who escaped from a low-security Maine State Prison facility Friday night.

According to a press release, Brian Floyd escaped from the Bolduc Correctional Facility in Warren at about 10 p.m. Friday night. The Department of Corrections was working with state and local police Saturday in an effort to find him, according to Judy Plummer, a spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections.

Floyd, 21, is described as about 5 feet 10 inches tall, 165 pounds and Caucasian with blond hair and blue eyes. He started his sentence with the Department of Corrections in June of this year for theft by unauthorized taking and was due to be released on May 22, 2015, with no probation to follow.

Plummer said no further information about the search was available Saturday morning.

The Bolduc Correctional Facility, at 516 Cushing Road in Warren, houses prisoners with three years or less left on their sentences and focuses on reintegrating them back into the community through work-release and community restitution programs.
