YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - Authorities are searching for an inmate who went missing from a minimum-security prison in Yankton.
Corrections officials say Richard Beckwith signed out of the Yankton Minimum Unit to go to a work release job Sunday morning and never arrived at the job site. The 51-year-old Beckwith was sentenced in 2006 to nearly 10 years in prison on a drug conviction in Minnehaha County.
