Deputies are searching for a man who failed to return to custody after leaving jail for the work release program Friday, according to a Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Daniel Lee Munson’s employer last saw the 31-year-old Clark Fork resident at about 10 a.m. Friday. Munson reportedly left his job site with his girlfriend, 33-year-old Heather R. Bethel from Spokane, according to the release.

Munson was serving a sentence for violation of a no-contact order but was given work release privileges, the release said.

Munson is white, 5 feet 9 inches tall and has blue eyes and blond hair.

Deputies ask anyone with information about Munson’s whereabouts to contact the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office at (208) 446-1300.
