Missing sex offender in Iowa

Cherokee, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities in northwest Iowa are searching for a man who absconded from a sex offender transition release program.

The Iowa Department of Human Services says 42-year-old Cory West did not return from his place of employment and was last seen in the Storm Lake area. Authorities say he absconded early Sunday.

West was ordered into a civil commitment program at the Cherokee Mental Health Institute in 2011, and became eligible for the transition release program in fall of 2013.

The program provides long-term inpatient treatment for violent sexual predators that have served their prison terms but are considered likely to commit further offenses.
