Greene County sheriff's deputies are looking for an escaped inmate who stole a government vehicle after walking off of work detail Sunday afternoon.

They're searching for 24 year old Charles Lawson. He was last seen on Old Asheville Highway of the South Greene Community.

Authorities are now looking for Lawson in the Mosheim area.

Deputies say Lawson was on a work crew when he ran from custody. They say that's when he stole a 2007 white ford f-350 from Greeneville Parks and Rec.

They say that truck is now painted black and the tag is removed.

If you have any information, you're asked to call law enforcement.
