Authorities are pursuing an inmate who escaped from the Atlanta halfway house on Saturday.

The Georgia Department of Corrections indicated that 23-year-old Dennis Carlyle escaped from theTransitional Center at approximately 3 am.

Police officials said Carlyle was last seen wearing laypersons clothes and has multiple tattoos on his neck and face.

The escaped convict is a 5’11” white male who weighs 205 pounds. He has blue eyes and brown hair and has used the name Dennis Zachery Lee Bray.

The facility he escaped from offers select offenders a job in the community while requiring them to conform to the structure of the program

Carlyle was found guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and robbery in 2012 and was serving a seven-year sentence. He was scheduled to be released in 2019.

The halfway house facility he broke out of from offers select inmates a job in the community, while expecting them to conform to the structure of the program, WXIA reported.

Officials say that the facility is not secure and therefore Carlyle was easily able to break out.

There is no indication from police on whether he is believed to be in the area or is hiding somewhere else.
