HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A work furlough inmate who went missing after leaving on a work furlough pass Saturday night has returned, Department of Public Safety (DPS) officials said.

Paul Ah Sing is spending time behind bars for second-degree murder. He was supposed to return to OCCC at 8 p.m. Saturday, but failed to do so on time. About an hour later, the DPS sent out an alert notifying the public.

Ah Sing returned to the facility around 11:50 p.m., and now faces an additional escape charge and other administrative actions, DPS says.

Hawaii News Now has reached out to the department for additional comment and to explain why a convicted murderer was given work furlough status. We are waiting to hear back from officials.
