ORIGINAL: Two inmates escaped from St. Clair Correctional Facility in Springville early Monday morning.

Authorities are looking for 27-year-old Antwone Wilson and 27-year-old Ronald King.

Wilson is serving a life sentence for first-degree robbery and King is serving 50 years for burglary, rape/sodomy and sexual torture in 2013.

Wilson is 5’0″ and weighs 145 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

King is 6’1″ and weighs 160 pounds. He also has black hair and brown eyes.

"We are very confident that we are going to get them," said Alabama Department of Corrections spokesperson Bob Horton.

All St. Clair County schools were placed on soft lockdown after the inmates escaped.

Sandy Peoples has a daughter at the middle school and grandchildren in the school system.

“I’m glad they got them on lockdown. They are protecting them,” said Peoples.

Students say they're glad the school is protecting them, but the threat from the prison is always a concern.

Local authorities, ALEA and U.S. Marshals Task Force continue their search for the missing inmates.

"Just look around for anything unusual. If you see anything that looks out of place go ahead and call us. Don’t take a chance on anything suspicious. Someone in that situation may be exempting less than normal behavior," said Sgt Don Newton.

Please call 1-800-831-8825 immediately if you see Wilson.
