The three men climbed through holes they had drilled in the ceiling of their cells and escaped through the jail’s back door, the sheriff’s office said.

Lance Stephens, Matthew Crawford and Christopher Blevins escaped from their cells in southwest Missouri on Friday morning.

Two of the men were charged with drug offenses and the third with larceny, the Barry County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

They should be seen as armed and dangerous.

The prison building is old with stucco ceilings, making it easier for inmates to drill the holes they used to use to escape, Sheriff Danny Boyd told ABC News.

Boyd said the inmates were acquaintances and two shared a cell.

The third inmate was in a cell several meters away.

There is no indication that an employee helped them escape, but the sheriff said he interviews all prison employees who worked the morning they escaped.

The sheriff’s office also pulled surveillance video from the time of their escape.

Boyd told ABC News that he received tips that suggest two of the inmates left the state of Missouri.

The US Marshals Service is currently searching for the men.

The sheriff’s office has requested any information that could lead to the arrest of the escaped convicts.

Local officials said they would pass any relevant information to the US Marshals.

The inmates’ escape comes after the high-profile manhunt for Casey and Vicky White.
