The Knox County Sheriff's Office is searching for a female inmate who walked off from a courtroom visitation room Friday afternoon.

The sheriff's office said Tiffany Parker, 28, was taken to a visitation room adjacent to Criminal Court II to meet with her attorney.

The sheriff's office said the attorney left her alone, and she walked out of the building.

Parker is described as a 5'5" white woman, weighing 125 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing blue, scrub-like pants and a white t-shirt.

In the jail, she was a kitchen worker. The sheriff's office said she removed the shirt identifying her as a jail kitchen worker before leaving.

Parker was being held in the Knox County Jail on a charge of failure to appear on prior charges. The sheriff's office can be reached at 215-2243.
