Police in northern Greece on Wednesday were seeking a 51-year-old foreign inmate of the Nigrita Prison who failed to return to the penitentiary on Tuesday, when his furlough expired.

The inmate, who had received a six-day prison leave, is serving a sentence for forming a criminal gang and violating immigration law.
