COPY-Officials looking for AWOL inmate

DANE COUNTY (WKOW) -- Officials say a Dane County jail inmate has been declared AWOL.

Dane County Sheriff's Deputies were called to pick up Gerald Danish from Meriter Hospital Friday at 2:00 p.m.  When they arrived, Danish was not in his room.

Danish was transported from the jail to Meriter on Wednesday for medical treatment.

The 59-year-old is currently serving a sentence for receiving stolen property.  Danish was not guarded because he was sentenced with Huber, which allows him to receive medical treatment without supervision.

Anyone with information about Danish's whereabouts should call 911.
