VINITA, Okla._The search continues for two inmates who escaped from a prison in Vinita, Oklahoma.

Authorities say 38-year-old John J. Shepherd and 33-year-old Jason Pedro walked away from the northeast Oklahoma correctional center between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. Monday.

There is no fence around the minimum security prison, but prison officials are still working to determine why they were outside.

Shepherd was serving time for possession of a stolen vehicle and burglary tools. Pedro, who has escaped before, was imprisoned for multiple convictions involving drugs and weapons.

Their clothes were found on the ground outside the prison, but officials are still trying to determine which route they took.
