Inmate may have fled in stolen SUV

The Associated Press

        SUMMIT, Ky. — Authorities searching for an inmate who escaped from the Federal Prison Camp say the Ohio man may have stolen a sport-utility vehicle shortly after fleeing the facility.

        The inmate, Harry Teal of Hamilton, apparently escaped sometime Tuesday morning, authorities said. Prison camp officials said they learned of his disappearance during a midday head count Tuesday.

        Mr. Teal was serving a 36-month sentence at the minimum-security camp for parole violation. He had been convicted of bank fraud, said Trooper Gary Kistner, spokesman for the Ashland post of the Kentucky State Police.

        Police think Mr. Teal may be driving a white 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee stolen Tuesday morning in Ashland.

        Ashland police said that Mr. Teal went to the car lot Tuesday morning and asked to test-drive the vehicle. A salesman went with him.

        Mr. Teal drove to a bank parking lot. When the salesman got out of the vehicle to buy cigarettes, Mr. Teal drove off, Ashland police said.

        Mr. Teal is white, about 30 years old, 6-feet-1, about 200 pounds with black hair and green eyes.
