Dana Thomas ran out of an open door just after midnight Wednesday morning, Sheriff Mike Crocker said.
Thomas waited behind a garbage can before running when a jail staffer opened a door for another inmate who was returning from work-release, Crocker said.
Police interviewed Thomas’ friends and family but found no indication of his whereabouts.
Thomas was to be sentenced in Traill County for DUI. He is wanted on warrants in a number of other counties for various charges.
