GULFPORT - Mississippi authorities say two inmates have escaped from a Gulfport detention facility.

The Sun Herald reports that 21-year-old Zachary Savoie and 33-year-old Joshua Walton were reported missing early Sunday morning from the Harrison County Community Work Center.

The state Department of Corrections says Savoie was serving a four-year sentence for a residential burglary conviction in Pike County, while Walton was serving a six-year sentence for a residential burglary conviction in Neshoba County.

Savoie was sentenced last September. Walton was sentenced in March.
