Two manhunts were underway Monday in Ohio and North Carolina after prisoners escaped from correctional institutions in those states.
John Modie, a 58-year-old convicted murderer, broke out of the Hocking Unit of the Southeastern Correctional Complex in Nelsonville, Ohio, CNN reports. He was discovered to be missing at 11 p.m. on Sunday and his disappearance prompted the local Hocking College to take special security measures.
In Edenton, North Carolina, convicted 26-year-old kidnapper Kelvin Singleton escaped from the Chowan County Detention Facility around 4 p.m. on Sunday, threatening a corrections officer with a sharpened toothbrush.
Officials in both states are searching for the men and urging those who may encounter them to exercise caution and inform the authorities of any information that may help in their capture.
