A former high school basketball star imprisoned at Maryland Correctional Training Center failed to report back to prison from a work-release program Tuesday and was still at large Tuesday night, Maryland State Police said.
Diamond Christopher Scott, 18, of Hagerstown, was working at the Airport Inn on Md. 11 when he disappeared at 6:40 p.m., authorities said.
Scott is described as a black male, 6 feet, 3 inches tall, weighing about 195 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
Scott was in prison on larceny and assault convictions, said David Powers, a spokesman for the Maryland Division of Corrections.
Powers said Scott had a release date of November 1997. If captured and convicted, he faces up to 10 more years in prison.
