Three inmates are on the loose from minimum-security state prison facilities in Alabama.

Two of the prisoners escaped Thursday.

State prison officials say 49-year-old Michael John Klink escaped from the Elba Work Release Center in southeast Alabama earlier Thursday. He was serving 20 years for third-degree burglary.

A statement from the department says 43-year-old Terry Lee Stokes hasn’t been seen since he left a job location in Dadeville on Wednesday. Stokes is serving 20 years for second-degree burglary in Pike County at the state work release center in Alexander City.
