COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -- Officials spent most of the afternoon, evening and night searching for two inmates who escaped around 2:00 Wednesday afternoon.

Warden Geeter Boone says 26 year-old Kenderrick Hill and 23 year-old Joshua Chandler were on roadside detail near Old Cussetta Road when they decided to make a run for it....

"We immediately notified the Columbus Police Department and gave them the description of both inmates," says Deputy Warren Geeter Boone.

Columbus police and the Muscogee County Prison Search team hit the ground searching for the escapees. By 7:00, Chandler turned himself in.

Several tips led police to different spots in Columbus, but no luck.

Police consider Hill to be armed and dangerous. "Be careful If you see him," says Boone.
