It is unclear exactly how they escaped.  The Kansas City Star reports that the three men broke free by crawling under a section of the fence just before 8:00 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities consider these individuals dangerous, and believe the escapees may have gotten a ride out of the area.  All of the surrounding counties are assisting in the search, including local patrol, state troopers, highway patrol and SWAT.

The escapees -- Carlos Sarmiento, 57, Nicholas D. McCleary, 26, and Timothy J. Baudour, 34 -- do have family in the area, but it is unclear if they were involved in any way in the escapes.
