NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Newport News Sheriff’s Office is looking for an inmate who walked away from his work release job.

Corey Donell Frazier, 22, had been on work release since May 2018.

Officials say Frazier was in jail for probation violation, misdemeanor concealed weapon and possession of a firearm by a non-violent felon.

Frazier was last seen wearing a white shirt, black sweatpants and black shoes in Hampton.

Anyone with information on Frazier’s whereabouts should call Dispatch at 757-247-2500.
