JACKSON — Authorities were searching Monday for two state inmates.
Pearl River County Jail prisoner Raphael Taylor escaped from the facility in Poplarville Friday.
The 22-year-old Taylor is serving a five-year sentence for a vehicle burglary in Lauderdale County.
Inmate Randy N. Blansett didn’t return to the Chickasaw County Jail in Houston after a pass on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Blansett is serving a three-year sentence for two felony DUI convictions, one each in Monroe and Chickasaw counties.
Blansett is a 29-year old white male with green eyes, brown hair and weighs 185 pounds.
A Mississippi Department of Corrections spokeswoman said anyone with information about the two should alert authorities.
