Authorities in California are searching for an inmate with a unique identifier — a full-face skull tattoo — after police said he went missing from a work crew in the Central Valley.

Officials with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that inmate Corey Hughes was reported missing Monday afternoon in Stockton.

The 27-year-old, who had been sentenced on a weapons charge, was scheduled to be released in February from Honor Farm, a minimum-security facility where he was being held, authorities said.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office could not immediately be reached for comment on the search.

A model decided to tattoo her eyeball. She’s now partially blind and in ‘excruciating’ pain.

Authorities said Hughes was last seen near Interstate 5 and Country Club Boulevard.

The sheriff’s office has asked anyone with information to contact authorities.
