PARCHMAN — A man serving life in prison for killing his girlfriend in 1996 has escaped from the Mississippi State Penitentiary in Parchman, and visitation there was closed.

Michael Blan Dowda, 48, is considered armed and dangerous, corrections spokeswoman Jasmine Cole said in a news release.

Visitation was closed Sunday. Calls to ask whether Dowda remained at large Sunday or whether visitation would resume today were not returned.

Cole said officials realized Saturday afternoon that Dowda was missing from a maintenance detail. He allegedly stole a white 2005 Silverado truck with Yalobusha County disability tag number S0922 and drove out.
