Timothy J. Worth was back in custody Monday after walking away from a work site, officials from the state Department of Corrections confirmed.

Law enforcement from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department were searching for Worth, 61, after he walked away from a minimum security work release job site Monday morning. He is an inmate at the Sturtevant Transitional Facility.

DOC Communications Director Tristan D. Cook told Racine County Eye that Worth was waiting for DOC staff at pick-up time and what happened in the hours before is under investigation.

“He was at the work release site at the pick up time. DOC will be investigating to determine what happened,” Cook said in an email.

Worth was described as a white male, five-foot five-inches tall, 185 pounds, and has blue eyes.

We have asked the DOC for more information about where Worth was found and will update this story when those details become available.
