Baltimore: East side

Inmate walks away from corrections site

Authorities were searching last night for a 41-year-old inmate who walked away from the Metropolitan Transition Center in East Baltimore while working on a cleanup detail. Henry Bryant was picking up trash with other inmates yesterday afternoon outside the jail in the 900 block of Forrest Street. When an officer conducted a count at about 2:30 p.m., he realized that Bryant was missing, said George Gregory, a spokesman for the Maryland Division of Correction. Bryant is serving nine years on manslaughter and drug-related charges, Gregory said.
