PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Police are looking for two men who escaped from the Pike County jail.
Jail officials say Patrick Adkins and Chadrick Gibson, both of Pike County, were working in the kitchen and forced the alley door open just enough to crawl underneath it.
Police say Adkins' sister, Megan Adkins, was waiting outside to pick them up.
She has since been arrested.
Anyone with information about Adkins or Gibson should call Kentucky State Police.
