Georgia inmate escapes, presumably on the run to Jacksonville – Action News Jax

Telfair County – An inmate is on the run after reportedly escaping the Telfair County prison yard in Milan, Georgia Friday afternoon.

MPs, U.S. marshals, and other state and local agencies believe Lee may be trying to get to Jacksonville, where he has a family.

If Lee looks familiar, you might have seen his face before.

In January, Action News Jax told you that he was wanted by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office for armed robbery and grievous bodily harm in Telfair County.

JSO officials believed Lee was hiding in a house on Grant Street but turned up empty-handed after a search by a JSO SWAT team.

Lee later called in without incident, according to JSO.

Now, two months later, the search has resumed.

Officials say Lee may be wearing gray shorts and a white T-shirt in place of his orange overalls.

Robert Lee is considered dangerous.

The police ask if you can see Lee, please call 911 immediately.
