Authorities are searching for a 52-year-old inmate who was mistakenly released from jail in Miami.

Eduardo Cabana was freed “in error” on Monday, which was also his birthday, the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department said.

Jail officials said they don’t know how the error occurred, the Miami Herald reported.

Cabana was in jail at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on multiple charges, including obstruction by a disguised person, shooting or throwing a deadly missile and criminal mischief. He was also being held without bond on a probation warrant, records show.

The agency is hoping to find Cabana as quickly as possible, spokesman Juan Diasgranados said in a statement. An investigation into his early release is continuing.

State criminal records show Cabana has previously faced charges including robbery with a firearm, burglary and purchasing or selling cocaine.

Anyone who sees Cabana should call 911, the agency said.
