Two Inmates Escape Minimum Security Prison Facility

HENNING, Tenn. - Law enforcement is searching for two prison inmates who reportedly left a minimum security annex in Henning.

According to the Tennessee Department of Correction, Ashton Siler, 21, and Dustin Wayman, 20, were both minimum custody inmates who were close to being released from prison when they left the West Tennessee State Penitentiary Annex.

Siler is serving an eight year prison sentence for drug convictions out of Madison County. He would have been eligible for parole next year. Wayman was serving a two year sentence for auto burglary out of Knox County. His sentence was due to expire in January.

Both men now face an additional five years added to their sentence.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts should contact the Tennessee Department of Correction or their local law enforcement agency.
