Law enforcement officials are looking for three inmates who walked away from the Lansing Correctional Facility.

The inmates escaped early Friday from minimum security. Further details of their escape were not immediately available.

The inmates are 31-year-old Allen M. Hurst and 49-year-old Scott A. Gilbert, who both were convicted in Sedgwick County in 2010 of multiple counts of burglary and theft; and 57-year-old Randy A. Ridens Sr., who was convicted in Shawnee and Douglas counties in 2010 of several burglary counts and one count of theft.

Corrections officials say all escaped inmates should be considered armed and dangerous.
