State police are searching for a Bedford County woman who authorities say escaped from a Pittsburgh corrections center on Thursday.

Ashley Dawn Dodson, 31, left the Pittsburgh Community Corrections Center without authorization, Pennsylvania State Police said in a Facebook post.

Dodson was serving time for theft by deception, police said.

She has blonde hair and hazel eyes and is about 5-feet-4-inches tall and 135 pounds, police said. She has a cross tattoo on her left wrist, an anchor on her right wrist and a flower and vine on her right ankle.

State police on Thursday filed one charge of escape against Dodson.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police in Pittsburgh at 412-299-1607.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
