(MIAMI) — A Florida inmate who was serving life in prison for armed robbery escaped from prison on Friday.

Ronald McCoy, 39, was sentenced in 2004 to life in prison after he was convicted of multiple counts of armed robbery, as well as charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.

McCoy had previously served time for a separate armed robbery in 1992.

It was not immediately clear how McCoy escaped from the prison. The Florida Department of Corrections is working with local law enforcement and Florida Department of Law Enforcement to apprehend him.

The Florida DOC describes McCoy as a 6-foot-3 inch tall, 200 pound black man with black hair, brown eyes and tattoos on his left bicep and the right side of his chest.
