Authorities search for escaped inmates
Authorities are searching for two inmates who escaped from the minimum-security annex of the West Tennessee State Penitentiary in Henning.
The Tennessee Department of Corrections says 21-year-old Ashton Siler and 20-year-old Dustin Wayman escaped on Monday.
Siler is serving an eight-year prison sentence for drug convictions out of Madison County. He is eligible for parole next year.
Wayman was serving a two-year sentence for auto burglary out of Knox County. He is set for release in January.
Both men now face an additional five years in prison if convicted of escape.
