WASHINGTON COUNTY, Miss. - Sheriff's Deputies are searching for three men who they say escaped from the county jail Wednesday.

Authorities are looking for Richard Lee Bell, Elton Harper Jr., and Antonio Laderrick Jones.

Sheriff Milton Gaston says he and his deputies were searching for the escapees in a field this morning. He says the men broke out early this morning. 

Gatson says the escaped inmates might be cut badly because they had to cross three sets of razor wire to get out.

Anyone who may have more information or have spotted the escapees should contact authorities.
