THREE RIVERS, Texas - Authorities continue looking for a minimum security inmate who escaped from a South Texas federal prison.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports Jose Aguilar Junior walked away from the prison near the town of Three Rivers Friday morning.

Maria Arviza, a prison spokeswoman, told the newspaper Aguilar ran off into the brush when an employee noticed him walking away. The prison is a medium security facility with an adjacent satellite prison camp that houses minimum security male offenders like Aguilar.

Aguilar, a 28-year-old Brownsville native, began serving a 9-month sentence for a supervised release violation in April. His projected release date was October 23rd.

Arviza says Aguilar's original charge was making a false statement in connection with firearms records. Authorities say Aguilar does not have a history of violence.
