Search continues for escaped inmates in Major County, Oklahoma

ORIENTA — The search for two escaped inmates in Major County continued Wednesday, authorities reported.

The out-of-state inmates were being escorted to Kansas by a private inmate transport service when they escaped Tuesday.

"We have nothing," Major County Sheriff Steven Randolph said. "There have been no sightings, no phone calls. It's like they vanished. It's weird."

The men, Andrew Jason Foy, 32, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and another inmate identified as Darren Walp, 37, overtook two transport officers from Inmate Services Corporation about 3:25 a.m. Tuesday near U.S. 412 in Orienta, Major County, the Major County Sheriff's Office reports. The van was recovered Tuesday.

Randolph said the van was found in Ringwood, and an empty gun holster was found inside. An oilfield company truck was later reported stolen in the area. The truck was described as a maroon 2006 Dodge Ram with Oklahoma tag DEL244.

The sheriff's office reported Walp was being taken to the Seward County Sheriff’s Department in Kansas when he escaped. Randolph said agents from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation are assisting in the case. The agents are attempting to track down tips.

"Can the Cats" food drive receives big donation

Has donated 50,000 pounds of food in the form of potatoes and onions.

Missoula Food Bank Executive Director Aaron Brock says these items are perfect because they have a long shelf-life and the food is being stored by the growers and sent to the food bank on an as needed basis. 

In addition to helping the Missoula Food Bank in their effort to raise more pounds of food than the Bozeman Food Bank, it gives them a welcome kick start heading into the holiday season. 

Last year, the “Can the Cats” food drive raised over 300,000 pounds of food, falling just a few thousand behind Bozeman. 

“It was very close, but we lost and we’ve lost 15 of the 17 years that we’ve done this little competition, so our hope is that this donation from the credit union plus so many other donations that we are seeing every single day, really every single hour, pushes us over the top,” Brock says.
