Officials are still searching for two inmates who escaped from the Raymond Detention Center over the weekend.

Traverro McElroy, 36, and Tyler Charles Payne, 31, were discovered missing during Sunday morning’s headcount. McElroy was being held on charges of murder and possession of a firearm, while Payne had been charged with armed carjacking and taking of a vehicle.

Following their escape, a church about 1.5 miles from the detention center had a white van stolen from it.

On Sunday afternoon, Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones said a witness reported seeing a white male pushing a van into a body of water in Anna, Texas. The van has since been removed and confirmed as the same one from the church.

According to Jones, both individuals are considered dangerous. Anyone with information should contact the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office at (601)352-1521.
