The bloodhounds have been called out and officials believe they have one inmate surrounded, but there's still another who escaped the Dixon Correctional Institute just before noon Friday.

Officials are looking for Racey Ford and Rusty Clark. We hear the two apparently rode to freedom in the back of a garbage truck.

Heavily-armed officials are now searching an area between Slaughter and Ethel. One inmate is reportedly surrounded in the northern part of Slaughter behind Tri-Parish Co-Op, a lumber and farm supplies store.

A number of law enforcement agents are patrolling the roadways in Slaughter to try and track the two down, and West Feliciana helicopters are helping to search the area. If you spot them, call 911.
