David Sweat (left) and Richard Matt escaped from prison Saturday and remain on the run.

The massive manhunt for New York’s two most wanted fugitives focused Thursday on a rural area just two miles from the prison where the pair escaped Saturday.

Bloodhounds reportedly picked up the scent of convicted murderers David Sweat and Richard Matt, while authorities found a spot where they believed the missing pair were “bedding down,” ABC News reported Thursday.

Several roads east of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., including Route 374, were shut down Thursday morning as a helicopter circled over a heavily wooded area within walking distance of the prison.

More than 450 cops and K-9 teams on the ground searched for the elusive escapees. Gov. Cuomo announced a $100,000 bounty for the arrests of Sweat, 34, and Matt, 48.

HOW THE PRISON BREAK WENT DOWN: EXCLUSIVE details on the escape route from New York's Clinton Correctional Facility

Local schools were closed for the day and residents were warned to lock their doors as the search intensified in its sixth day.

Robocalls made to area homes asked people to leave their outdoor lights turned on to help authorities hunting the convicts.

While authorities feared the pair had reached Vermont after their daring “Shawshank Redemption”-style escape, the Thursday morning manhunt indicated the duo didn’t make it too far.

But officials have yet to receive a confirmed report of a physical sighting of either man since the jail break. Authorities believe the fugitives had a head start of several hours before prison officials noticed their shocking absence.

The stretch of Route 374 was initially shut down about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday as authorities chased a lead on the two escapees, state police sources told the Daily News.

Sweat and Matt hatched an elaborate scheme to break out of the maximum security lockup near the Canadian border, using power tools authorities suspect were supplied to them by Joyce Mitchell, a worker at the prison, sources said.

Police know they had help so they're questioning a female prison guard authorities believe may have been charmed by one of the prisoners and helped them escape. They had some kind of machine they used to punch a hole in the wall so they could escape. Guards say they didn't hear a thing. *side eye*

If they were smart enough to figure out how to escape from a maximum security prison, they were smart enough to have a plan to get as far away as possible. I hope the police are just saying they didn't get that far in the hopes that they'll let their guards down and possibly get caught by messing up in some way.

If I were them, I would've already been in Canada by the time they figured out I was missing. Heck, might've caught a plane to Russia by now.

Why wasn't the female guard who helped them plan the escape arrested? That trick's husband worked at the jail as well. He had no idea his wife was romancing a murderer. She had a panic attack and backed out at the last minute.

She must be white because a sister helping a "thug" would have been arrested at the hospital.

I know the people who live in that area are frightened.

Richatd Matt allegedly has a genius level IQ, is well endowed, and liked Oprah :look:
He's probably the one who seduced the fat woman into helping with the escape. His own daughter is terrified of him :(.

How sociopathic charms of escaped murderer Richard Matt are keeping him and fellow fugitive David Sweat on the Iam

HE IS a convicted killer and rapist with a “genius” IQ and the sociopathic charisma of Ted Bundy. The cop who put Richard Matt behind bars the last time around commented that the 48-year-old fugitive was “very handsome” when he scrubbed up and is “in all frankness, very well-endowed”.
Matt’s legal aid lawyer, Matthew P Pynn, once told a court: “I can’t explain it. I can see him as a guy who would have a lot of friends ... Rick Matt was a fun but dangerous guy to hang around with.”
Revelations today by a Clinton Correctional supervisor that Matt was nicknamed “Hacksaw” by fellow inmates and was a highly gifted artist with a soft spot for Oprah will do nothing to diminish his cult of personality.
But as the police manhunt for Matt and convicted killer and prison escapee, David Sweat, 35, prepares to enter a fourth day, Matt’s family, ex-lovers and those who have testified against him are now living in fear that he will seek them out in a bid for either refuge or revenge.
The only person seemingly unafraid of this monster is his son Nick Harris, who shared memories of his father with New York’s Buffalo News and supplied an incredible photograph of Matt holding him as a baby during a jailhouse visit.

The 23-year-old, who has taken time out of university to look after his disabled mother Vee Harris — Matt’s childhood sweetheart and ex-wife — said he believes his fugitive father would not harm him.
“My father has always wanted to have a relationship with me,” he said.
This is despite recounting the horror that unfolded the last time Matt visited the family home.
“My father broke into my mother’s house in Tonawanda (New York) and beat her,” Harris said. “I was an infant when it happened.”
The News verified that story with police.
Harris said his father, too, was subject to early trauma at the hands of a deadbeat father and ultimately ended up a ward of the state.
“He was left as an infant in a car. Everybody is born innocent, but he was raised around crime. Then he went into foster care,” he said.
An unnamed police source, who arrested Matt’s father in the Broadway-Fillmore neighbourhood on multiple occasions, remembered him as “a piece of garbage”.

Harris said he couldn’t understand why prison authorities hadn’t kept a closer eye on his father, given he had escaped jail on two previous occasions.
In 1986, Matt broke out of New York’s Erie County Correctional Facility, where he was serving time for rape. He scaled a wall and gate topped with razor wire that slashed his forearms and remained on the loose for five days before he was caught at a family apartment in Tonawanda, New York.
In 1997, Matt kidnapped and murdered his 76-year-old former boss William Rickerson before chopping his body to pieces. He then stole a van belonging to his half-brother Wayne Schimpf, dumping it in 1997. After killing Rickerson, Matt had stolen his half brother’s van, dumping it in Texas before legging it over the border to the town of Montomoros, where he was arrested after a fatal bar stabbing.
He tried to break out of a Mexican prison, making his way to the roof before being shot by a guard.
“This guy has bullet holes on his body. He’s been shot like nine times. It’s like they can’t kill him,” Harris said.
“He showed me the scars on his forearms from another time he escaped.”

It would take a decade for him to be extradited to New York to face trial for the kidnap and murder of Rickerson. A police sniper was posted outside the courthouse and Matt was forced to wear an electric stun belt. He was sentenced to 25 years to life.
During the trial, Schimpf testified that in January 1998, Matt told him he was in trouble “that he thought he might have killed Mr. Rickerson on accident”.
“He said they hacked him up. I remember when he showed me the article, I just kind of looked at him like, ‘Are you for real?’” he told the court.
“And I just says — I mean, I couldn’t believe that he did it. I says, ‘How did you do it? How did you hack him up, with a chainsaw or something?’
“He turned and looked at me, and with a grin that I won’t forget, he said, ‘With a hacksaw’.
“This whole time I’m still thinking he’s full of crap, he’s just trying to sound big. You know, I really didn’t want to believe it.
“I remember his words: ‘I can do another seven years, but I can’t do life’.”
When Schimpf refused to let Matt use his car to get out of town, Matt warned, “You’re my brother, you’re my blood. I love you but I’ll kill you.”

The Clinton escape, the first in the prison’s 170-year history, involved cutting through steel walls at the back of their adjoining cells, crawling through a steam pipe and emerging from a manhole in a residential community. They left behind a note saying, “Have a nice day”.
Two residents said they spotted the fugitives in their back yard at 12.30am on Saturday, ABC News reported. They were holding what appeared to be a guitar case, which reportedly was kept in one inmate’s cell and may have been used to hide tools used in the escape.
“We’re just lost. We don’t know where we are. We’re on the wrong street,” the resident told ABC News the men responded when confronted.
That encounter occurred about five hours before guards realised the pair was gone.
Unions representing guards and civilian staff at the prison said many have been questioned by investigators, but no one has been suspended, disciplined or charged.
Police are investigating a female prison worker’s possible connection to their elaborate bust. Joyce Mitchell, 51, an industrial-training supervisor who has worked at Clinton Correctional since 2008 and lives an hour from the facility.
Mitchell’s son, Tobey Mitchell, 21, told NBC that his mother checked herself into a hospital with chest pains on Saturday. He said she wouldn’t have helped the inmates escape.
Earlier today there were reports police had cornered the pair in a town about 40km north of New York where they were believed to have stolen a gun from a local residence. They have since speculated that Matt, at least, may have fled to Mexico, where he still has many contacts.

Police in body armour have resumed house-to-house searches near the maximum-security prison.
On the fifth day of searching, state police said the house searches aren’t the result of any new leads and law enforcement is retracing its steps in Dannemora, about 32 kilometres from the Canadian border.
“They’ll be doing a 100 per cent sweep from the prison right out, see how that goes,” said David Favro, the sheriff for Clinton County, where the prison is located.
Law enforcement officials reiterated their plea for the public’s help in reporting anything unusual in the area.
“We don’t want them out searching the woods,” Favro said.
“But if you’re sitting on your porch, get your binoculars out and see if you see something unusual.”

DA: Prison Employee Gave Big-Dicked Fugitive Hacksaw Blades and Drills



Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie told CNN this morning that Clinton Correctional Facility employee Joyce Mitchell provided “provided some form of equipment or tools” to Richard Matt, the allegedly big-dicked prisoner who escapedlast Friday.

Sources later told CNN that the tools included drill bits, special lighted eyeglasses, and hacksaw blades, which Matt and his partner David Sweat used to cut through a cell wall and a 24-inch steam pipe.

Authorities believe Mitchell had some sort of inappropriate relationship with Matt, though she hasn’t been arrested or named a formal suspect. CNN sources claim Mitchell told investigators that Matt made her feel “special” and that she made phone calls to people connected to the convicted murderer, and former co-workers have also described her as a “troublemaker.” New York State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico has also accused Mitchell of planning to pick up the escaped convicts (she reportedly checked herself into the hospital instead).

Yesterday morning, dogs reportedly picked up the scent of Matt and Sweat inDannemora, the town that houses Clinton Correctional Facility, and led authorities to an area where they spent at least one night. Schools remain closed in the area as hundreds of law enforcement agents continue to search the area surrounding the town, which residents told the Albany Times Union consists of “thick forest, swampland and a sand pit.”

I read how they had to cut through a pipe, go through the prison tunnels, etc. That would take way more than 7 hours wouldn't it?

Yes. When they initially reported this story, some news outlet (can't remember which one) stated that they could have been missing for up to 36 HOURS before anyone noticed/started the search. They were both part of the "honor block", which meant they got more rec time, access to their own laundry and kitchen, and more, I believe.

I haven't heard that number since the beginning of coverage, but I believe it. There are way too many questions and not enough answers. The administration of that prison messed up royally.
