Search on for Escapees

By  | 

Two escaped inmates from a Louisiana jail are believed to be in this area.

The prisoners from Union Parish, La., escaped from work details.
37-year-old Stephen B. Wright and Dayle Peters, 38, are white males. They escaped Tuesday.

They have reportedly been seen in both southern Lauderdale County and northern Clarke County.

Authorities say they believe Wright, of the Shreveport area, was making repairs on a green Blazer, which he then used to escape. And they say Peters, of Dallas, left his detail and traveled to Louisiana Highway 33 south, where he met Wright.

If you live in these areas, you're asked to keep your doors locked and take keys out of your car.

If you see anything suspicious, you're asked to call Crimestoppers immediately at 601-917-8888.
