According to Elk County Prison Warden Gregory J. Gebauer, William Umstead, who previously was employed as a laborer for a company in Bradford, has been on the loose for nearly a year.
Umstead, serving a 90-day sentence for domestic relations [failure to pay child support], was granted work release but failed to report back to Elk County Prison following his shift nearly a year ago.
