A Rocky Grove man who was confined to a Pittsburgh-area correctional facility escaped last week, and authorities in Pittsburgh believe he may have attempted to return to Venango County.

A State Police report indicates that 30 year-old Michael Smith fled a Veterans Affairs clinic while on an authorized pass  on January 10.  Smith did not return to the Riverside Community Corrections Center.

Smith is described as a white male, standing 5-feet-9 and weighing 178 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

He was confined on a burglary sentence.  Information on Smith’s whereabouts should be forwarded to the Pennsylvania State Police.
