How long can county jail hold an inmate from a safp program who was brought over to testify?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Fort Worth, TX

He is scheduled for release in 5 days. The DA worked out an arrangement with his PO and they were supposed to return him as soon as he finished testifying. The trial is over and he is still there. When I call they lie to me saying he is not there. I know he is still there because I just spoke with him. I cant get a hold of his PO and I am worried.
