Kansas Jail Inmate Escapes While Out for Dental Appointment

Associated Press - June 19, 2015 6:43 am

Authorities are looking for a jail inmate who did not return from a court-ordered furlough in Cowley County.

The sheriff’s office said in a news release that 19-year-old Candise Renee Cross of Winfield left the Cowley County Jail with her mother Thursday for a dentist appointment, but apparently fled during a bathroom stop on the drive back to the jail.

Cross was serving time for failing to appear in two Cowley County court cases, one for interfering with law enforcement and the other for misdemeanor battery.

Cross is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing about 135 pounds. She has reddish brown hair with dark streaks and was last seen wearing a white tank top and blue jeans.
