Search on for 2 escaped inmates in West Tenn.


HENNING, Tenn. (AP) - 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 8-year prison sentence for drug convictions out of Madison County. He is eligible for parole next year.

Wayman was serving a 2-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.
