According to its website, the Atlanta TC prepares felons nearing the end of their incarceration to "assume responsible citizenship" and "maintain an OJT workforce of felons who have up to forty-two months left on their sentence to operate outside details for various state agencies at no cost to taxpayers."

Moore's aliases include "Abdul-Jabbar" and "Billy Sayso," officials said.

Moore is 5'11" and weighs around 150 pounds.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911.
