NATCHITOCHES - Authorities in Natchitoches Parish continue to search for three inmates who escaped from the parish Detention Center.

The sheriff's office said in a news release that 34-year-old Willie E. Ethridge, 24-year-old Michael Elliot and 35-year-old Walshea Mitchell escaped Saturday night and then apparently jumped over two rolls of razor-wire fence.

On Monday, deputies said the men may be traveling in a stolen, white 2015 Ford truck with Louisiana license number 240146. They say the truck was stolen Sunday from a work site in Natchitoches.

Ethridge was serving time until 2037 for one count of attempted second-degree murder and two counts of armed robbery.

Elliot was sentenced on theft charges and Mitchell was serving time for armed robbery with a weapon and attempted armed robbery.
