WEST FELICIANA - U.S. Marshals on the hunt for David St. Germain, an inmate that escaped from the West Feliciana Parish jail last week, may be in Slidell where he has family ties.
Marshals tracked St. Germain there last week but lost him in the woods near Slidell. There's been no word since Saturday on where he may be, but authorities say signs still point to him being in the area, such as thefts of food from a man's grill late last week.
Deputies said St. Germain may have stolen a car in Zachary Thursday to get to Slidell where his "substitute mother" lives. He showed up at her house and asked her for help, but she said no and called police, who followed him into the woods but could not locate him.
