WAUSHARA COUNTY (WKOW) -- Waushara County Sheriff's Office says two inmates are still missing in Waushara County when four inmates with work release privileges did not return to jail after employment.

On June 6, four inmates were released to work in the Wautoma area.  The employer notified the Sheriff's Office that their labor was not needed.  The inmates did not return to jail.  Deputies began to look for the inmates around 1:00 p.m.

One inmate returned voluntarily four hours later.  One inmate was arrested on Czech Drive in the Town of Dakota.  The remaining two have not been found.

The two inmates were serving sentences for property crimes.  They have no known history of assault, but should be considered dangerous because of the situation.

The inmates are 22-year-old Michael James Watford from Wautoma and 21-year-old Timothy Dale Lee from Redgranite.

One of the suspects may be wearing a Bears sweat shirt.  Waushara County Sheriff's Office says the inmates may have burglarized a residence in the Dakota area and stolen clothing.  They have friends and family in the Wautoma and Montello area.

Warrants have been issued for their arrest.
