Search still on for missing murderer

The hunt is still on for a man who went unaccounted for from the Albany Transitional Center on Sunday.

Bobby Smith was placed in the center six months ago after serving 26 years in prison for murder.

Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals tells FOX 31 that Smith was given a library pass to go to the library, and never returned.

Smith is described as a light-skinned black male in his 50's, standing 5'8", and weighing 220 pounds.

Sheriff Rachals says, "don't approach him unless you happen to know him, and if get you get suspicious of him, call us and if you get that bad feeling about him give us a call."

He adds Smith now faces an escape charge, which carries more time in prison.
