Breaking:  Sources close to the manhunt for an escaped Angola prisoner tell News 2 Henry Smith may have been spotted.   Alerts have been issued that he may be in a green Ford Taurus.  Search teams are still looking in woods near the prison.

44-year-old Smith walked off prison grounds yesterday while doing his daily job of picking up trash.   Multiple agencies are assisting in the search.  They're using blood hound dogs, helicopters, and special mapping technology to track Smith down. 

Smith had been serving a life sentence for a 1981 murder in Jefferson Parish.
