    John Modie, 58, was absent from the Southeastern Correctional Complex in Nelsonville during inmate counts at 11:00 p.m. on Sunday.

    A prison spokesman says he believes Modie may have taken shelter after his escape due to the strong storms that swept over southeast Ohio overnight. **Itís unclear where the convicted murderer was headed, but the prison says he has family ties to Washington County.

    Depending on the direction he headed (if on foot) there's forest with plenty of places to get lost/hide and farmland where he could find a farm house and get clothes/food etc. Lancaster, the nearest city, is about 6 miles north of the prison.
    If he managed to get wheels, then he's plenty far away by now. I wonder if he had help...

    "Modie may be in a Gold Jeep Grand Cherokee with possible tag number FMR5937.

    The sheriff's office says Modie may be accompanied by Cynthia Netter and Jessica Horsley. Netter is described as a black female and Horsley as a white female.

    Officials say Modie should have lacerations from razor wire and should be considered armed and dangerous.

    If you see this vehicle or any of the individuals, do not approach and contact local law enforcement."

    The ladies are denying any knowledge of the escapee.

    This is strange because I just returned from a short trip to that area on Friday. The area is very deeply wooded, but there are several small towns. The State Park and Wayne National Forest are right there. Lots of places to hide out. Fortunately it is a bit easier to see through the woods because the leaves haven't grown back on the trees yet.

    It is also worth mentioning that there were several abandoned buildings/homes/farm building etc... on my drive in that area.
