Two men who escaped from work release in Laurel County are still on the run.
Laurel County Detention Center employees say Mark Turner and Jimmy Martin were considered low risk prisoners.
However, we recently learned Turner has a history of running from police.
“The first time that we actually apprehended him we took a team in the woods, had an airplane, did some aerial surveillance and things to catch him. He’s kind of crafty,” Kevin Johnson said.
Officers from the Laurel County Detention Center and Clay County Sheriff's office have been following leads on the pairs whereabouts all day.
So far, this year in Kentucky there have been 35 prisoner escapes from county jails.
Nearly half of those have been work detail walk-offs.
