Authorities said a man who went missing from the county’s work release program earlier Thursday had turned himself in by Thursday evening.

A spokeswoman for the Dane County Sheriff’s Office said Carnell A. Perkins, 34, of Monona, left the Ferris Center on Rimrock Road at 10 a.m. Thursday to report for work.

Dane County Sheriff’s deputies said Carnell never showed up to his place of employment and he had not returned to the Ferris Center as of Thursday afternoon.

Sheriff’s press information officer Elise Schaffer said Perkins was declared AWOL but had been located by 11 p.m.

According to a report, Carnell is serving a nine-month probation sentence with Huber for battery causing substantial bodily harm.
