— Authorities continue to search for a convicted killer who escaped from a maximum-security prison in Arkansas.

The search continues Tuesday for 33-year-old Curtis Reese Jr., who is serving a 40-year sentence at the Tucker Unit.

Corrections Department spokesman Shea Wilson said Reese and another inmate escaped the prison Monday by hiding in an empty water tank atop an 18-wheel tractor-trailer.

The other inmate, 40-year-old James B. Ryan, was back in custody Monday afternoon.

Reese was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in Saline County in the 1997 deaths of Eric Ogden and Lance Kelloms.

Reese is white, has green eyes, is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 176 pounds. He also has tattoos of swastikas and skulls.
