Two EBR Parish prisoners on the loose tonight.

Deputies say the men escaped around 10:00pm Wednesday.

They were last seen working in the kitchen.

Deputies say shortly after, the two men disappeared.

Authorities found blood on the razor wire fence.

It's assumed that's how they made their escape.

Deputies say it's unusual for prisoners to break out since most of them haven't been charged with any crime.

Authorities have set up a perimeter around the prison and have police dogs out looking for these two men.
