Search for New York State Prison Escapees Enters Second Day

More than 200 officers from numerous law enforcement agencies were monitoring checkpoints and searching mountainous upstate New York terrain Sunday. Police are trying to apprehend two convicted murderers who executed an elaborate escape from a maximum security prison the day before.
The stunning breakout was the first ever for the maximum security portion of Clinton Correctional Facility. The prison, based in Dannemora, New York, opened 150 years ago.
Richard Matt killed and dismembered his boss in 1997. David Sweat killed a sheriff's deputy in 2002. According to authorities, the pair used power tools to gain access to catwalks, then a series of pipes and tunnels, which led to a manhole a block away from the prison.
