Law enforcement officials in California are searching for an easily recognizable inmate who escaped a work detail Monday afternoon.

Corey Hughes, 27, disappeared around 1:30 p.m. Monday from the Interstate 5 area just east of San Francisco, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office

What makes Hughes so recognizable is a large skull-face tattoo on his face. The Sheriff’s Office released his mugshot in an effort to get the word out to the public.

Hughes, who was being housed on the county’s honor farm while serving a sentence on a weapons conviction, was scheduled to be released in February. A search team was scouring the area for Hughes.

Anyone with information about Hughes’ whereabouts is asked to contact deputies at 209-468-4400.
