By AccessWDUN Staff

An inmate living at the Phillips Transitional Center in Buford failed to return from his Gainesville job on Wednesday, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.

Brian Scott Murphy, 47, had been serving a 20-year sentence for a burglary conviction out of Catoosa County. The transitional center is located on the grounds of Phillips State Prison on West Rock Quarry Road. The Department of Corrections website says the mission of the transitional center is to "assist residents in making a successful transition back into the community by providing social and employment skills."

Murphy is white, 5'4", weighs 160 lbs. and has brown hair and brown eyes, according to GDC records.

Authorities ask that anyone who sees Murphy not approach him, but instead call local law enforcement or the Department of Corrections at 478-992-5111.
