A manhunt continues in Floyd County for an inmate who escaped from the Otter Creek Correctional Facility.

Officials say 27 year old Larry Alan Crump climbed over a fence Thursday night. This is not his first escape. He got away twice before in Central Kentucky in 2004 and 2007.

"Got out where the bar and corner of a fence was completely around and he made a jump for it. Climbed over the fence and jumped over," said Floyd County Sheriff John K. Blackburn.

Crump was serving a 30 year sentence for a list of charges from Scott, Montgomery, Harrison, and Bourbon Counties, including two previous escapes from custody.

"I would consider him dangerous by his past record and his escapes. He's also charged with disarming a police officer," Blackburn said.

Otter Creek officials are stopping cars on the main Wheelwright roads to look for him.

"All we know is he has family in Mount Sterling. Possibility he could be headed there if he got a ride," Blackburn said.

Searchers are also canvassing the Wheelwright community to see if anyone has seen him.

"I am concerned about the dangerous of this. I would advise anyone if they see him, not to take any chances on him," Blackburn said.

Crump is described as six feet tall, 180 pounds with several tattoos including Daffy Duck on his arm and "Larry" on his abdomen. Police say he could have injuries from jumping the prison fence.

If you see Crump, call the sheriff's department or state police.

Otter Creek is on lockdown while Crump is missing. There will be no visitation on Saturday.
