CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Law enforcement officials across the Tri-State are looking for an inmate who escaped from a Cincinnati hospital over the weekend.

Eric Fiebig, 44, walked away from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in Clifton around 6 p.m. Sunday, according to Scott McVey, executive director of River City Correctional Center.

Fiebig is described as 5′9″ and weighs 160 pounds.

McVey says Fiebig was at River City Correctional Center Sunday when he fell down the stairs and was transported to the hospital for medical treatment.

UC Health’s Director of Media Relations Amanda Nageleisen said the hospital is only responsible for providing medical care to an inmate or person under arrest who comes to them. The agency which brings in the arrestee or inmate is still responsible for the custody, she explained.

Fiebig is at River City after the Adult Parole Authority reported a violation of drug paraphernalia, violation of a protection order and failure to notify change of address, according to McVey.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call 911.
