Authorities are looking for two Morgan County inmates who walked off their work detail Sunday afternoon.

According to a statement released by Sheriff Ana Franklin, the inmates, Johnny Wayne Johnson, 28, of Cullman and Steven Carl Mears, 24, of Decatur left their work detail in Decatur around 1 p.m.

Johnson is a white male, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and 185 pounds with brown hair and green eyes, authorities said. He has a tattoo above his left eye and another across his throat. Mears is a white male, 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 180 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair.

Franklin said both are believed to have been picked up by an unknown female driving a white sedan, make and model unknown.

Johnson was incarcerated on charges of manufacturing a controlled substance, while Mears was in jail on a probation violation, authorities said. Both now face felony escape charges.

The sheriff’s office asks anyone with information about the case to call 256-560-6196 or 256-301-1174.
