RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAU) - A man convicted of murder is on the loose. 54-year-old Todd Brecht is serving a life sentence for a 1986 homicide in Buffalo County and was on a work detail along Highway 70 in Vilas County. Brecht walked away from the site at about noon Tuesday.

Brecht is five foot six inches tall, has brown hair, hazel eyes, and weighs about 160 pounds.

He is an inmate at the Camp McNaughton State Prison.

Anyone that knows the whereabouts of Todd Brecht should call law enforcement immediately, and should not approach him.

Brecht is in prison for shooting his brother in law in the back with a .22 rifle during an argument back in 1985.
