 An inmate at the Dane County Jail has been declared absent without leave after not returning from a medical appointment Monday afternoon. This is the second inmate to go AWOL in the past four days, according to a news release from the Dane County Sheriff's Office.

Marcel Taylor, 45, was released from the Public Safety Building jail Monday morning and was supposed to return by 12:15 p.m., but when he didn't come back by 2 p.m., he was declared AWOL.

Taylor is serving jail time under the Huber work release law for retail theft and possessing narcotics. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 200 pounds.
