A man convicted of kidnapping in Wapello County has reportedly escaped a work release facility.
The Iowa Department of Corrections (DOC) says 25-year-old Jacob Rauscher failed to report back to the Burlington Residential Facility the night of Friday, June 26th.
Rauscher was admitted to the facility on May 15th. Rauscher is a white male, 5’10”, and weighs 169 pounds. The Iowa DOC says anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact local authorities.
Court records say in 2016, Rauscher aided another individual in the confinement of a victim against their will. Rauscher was eventually convicted of third-degree kidnapping and was given a 10 year-year sentence.
