Two inmates escape prison -- Frankfort, KY

State police are looking for two men who escaped from the Frankfort Career Development Center Tuesday.



James Johnson, 27, and William Johnson, 23, walked away from the minimum-security prison and were discovered missing around 10 p.m., Denise Lombardo, a spokeswoman for prison, and a press release say.

James Johnson, serving a six-year sentence, is a white male with brown hair and eyes. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds, according to the Department of Corrections Online Offender Lookup system.

William Johnson, serving a nine-year sentence, is a white male with brown hair and eyes. He is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 246 pounds, according to the system.

The men were last seen wearing khaki uniforms, and both have tattoos, reports say.

James Johnson was convicted of drug trafficking, burglary and theft in Powell County Nov. 4, and William Johnson was convicted of possession of a forged instrument and theft in Breathitt County Oct. 3, the system says.

James Johnson would've been eligible for parole in June, and William Johnson would've been eligible for parole in November, Todd Henson, a spokesman for the state Department of Corrections, said.
