The 19-year-old escaped with 45-year-old Clifford Opperud and another inmate before 8 p.m. Thursday. Lane has had a history of disciplinary procedures at the correctional facility since his sentencing in 2013. All three inmates are now in custody.

Police searched the area and warned Lima residents not to open their homes to strangers and for drivers not to pick up hitchhikers. Opperud has been at the Allen prison since 2008, serving time for charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, and kidnapping.
