WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Police in southwestern Ohio are looking for a prisoner they say escaped custody while at a hospital and made a getaway in a stolen car.
Wilmington police say John McKinney was wearing black-and-white striped jail clothing when he escaped from Clinton Memorial Hospital Sunday.
Police say McKinney took several blankets with him that he may have used to cover his jail uniform. Police said anyone helping McKinney will be prosecuted.
Wilmington police say their current focus is on finding McKinney. They also promise to investigate how McKinney was able to escape.
