Prison break: two felons flee “Little Siberia”

DANNEMORA – A massive manhunt is still underway as police and DOCS personnel search for convicted killers Richard Matt and David Sweat, the two men who escaped from an upstate prison over the weekend.

Currently, authorities are conducting active searches throughout three upstate counties and have received more than 150 tips in the case, according to the New York State Police.
