Police say Collins also is a white male, is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs bout 170 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes, and has a tattoo of an eight ball on his left forearm.

An investigation is ongoing. The KSP has been broadcasting descriptions of the pair to their units statewide. Anyone with information should contact KSP Trooper Bernis Napier through the Frankfort KSP Post #12 - 1-502-227-2221.

    I'm getting a little concerned about all the recent prison escapees that have been in the news. Prisons should be secure. Period! Seems like more and more just "walk away". Not very comforting to know.
