Noah Roush, 22, and Jatonia Bryan, 23 were discovered missing from the Jefferson County jail, also known as the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center, around 10:30 a.m. local time on Monday.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office operations commander Major Bean told CBS affiliate KTHV that, after looking through video footage, the office “discovered that it was Saturday [at] approximately 10 p.m. when they had exited the facility. Now, we’re going to every known resident; they may have had family members, places that they were known to go to frequently.”   

Bryant, a Black male, was being held on murder charges stemming from shooting, while Roush, a White male, was detained for burglary, the sheriff’s office said. 

Both men are considered armed and dangerous. 

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday announced a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the capture of either of the escapees.
