— State prison officials Tuesday asked for the public's help in finding an inmate who was serving a sentence for robbery and did not come back to the Raleigh Correctional Center for Women from her work-release job.

Officials said Laticia Howze, 33, worked at Snoopy's Hot Dogs on Hillsborough Street and was to have returned to the prison at 8:15 p.m. Friday, but has not been seen.

Howze and another woman were convicted in 2001 of two Asheville robberies, prison officials said.

They asked that anyone with information contact the prison at 919-733-4248 or their local police department.
