BUTTE, Mont. -

Authorities are looking for 31-year old Robert Burshia, an inmate who escaped from a chemical dependency center on Monday.

We're told he's an inmate at Fort Peck Adult Corrections Facility in Poplar, but was at the Montana Chemical Dependency Center in Butte when he escaped.

A representative at the corrections facility tells us he was serving time for numerous charges including three counts of Aggravated Assault, two Criminal Endangerment and one for Child Protection.

Burshia is described as a Native American male who is 6-feet, two inches tall and weighs 220 pounds. His hair color is black and eye color brown.

We're told Burshia is dangerous.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call police or the Fort Peck Adult Corrections Facility at 768-3204.
