The search continues for escaped killer Henry Smith.

Smith escaped from the Louisiana State Penitentiary while working on a road cleanup detail. Warden Burl Cain says signs indicate Smith is still in the rugged terrain near the prison.

Roadblocks are being used at major intersections on the highway leading to the prison. Search teams are using a GPS system to mark his trail and try and determine his next move.

Smith was convicted of murder as a teen during a 1982 burglary in Jefferson Parish.
