BATON ROUGE - Authorities searched an area of Baton Rouge after reportedly spotting an escapee from Ouachita Parish.

Members of the U.S. Marshal's Office said Jamie Sam, 33, walked away from a DOC work release program on March 29.

Investigators said they'd received a tip Sam was in Baton Rouge, and spotted him at a home on Wells Street. Authorities searched the area but said Sam evaded them.

Police dogs, a helicopter, as well as other officers are assisting in the search.

Sam was serving time for a 2012 conviction of marijuana possession with intent to distribute.
