    Tons of deputies with dogs at the Pt W State Forest entrance on 283 right now. Pretty good search party. Stay safe and happy hunting SOWAL authorities!

    I hate to give bad info here. Don't know what's true or not. One example is attempted kidnapping when suspect or more than one tried to shove a woman in trunk. Several other pieces of info not confirmed.

    They are posting about one person though rumors say there are three.. The search has been ongoing for hours. Looks like three were on the run, two captured. One still at large. Police are all over PCB west near Lake Powell bridge and Carillon. As well as Hwy 283 South north of Grayton Beach.

    Update:

    The escapee from Louisiana is contained in Carillon Beach area of Bay County. The search is now being coordinated by Bay County Sheriffs Office. Walton County Sheriffs Office will be assisting. FWC, DOC, PCBPD, Bay EMS and U.S. Marshals.

    Louisiana Escapees Courville and Newcomb were apprehended last night after fleeing from deputies. Stop strips were used to disable the stolen vehicle. Great work by all deputies involved.

    Can't wait to hear how he got from 283 to Inlet and then on to Carillon. Glad everyone is okay so far.
