MAJOR COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A manhunt is underway for two escaped inmates who reportedly stole a vehicle driven by Inmate Services Corporation, ditched it then stole another vehicle.

According to authorities, inmates,Andrew Jason Foy and Darren Walp overtook two transport officers and stole a transport van near Highway 412 in Orienta, Major County, at approximately 3:25 a.m. Tuesday.

The inmate transport company was headed to Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming and Kansas to pick up inmates.

The van was en route to a correctional facility in Kansas. Authorities are unsure where the inmates are headed.

Early reports from authorities said the pair may be headed to Tulsa, but the sheriff's office can't confirm which direction the van went. 

We're told the Inmate Transport van was found in Ringwood, Oklahoma and the the inmates have stolen another vehicle — a 2006 Dodge Ram that is maroon with the tag DEL244.

After investigating the transport van, officers said they found a police belt with a missing handgun from its holster.

The inmates should be considered armed and dangerous. 

Foy is a white male, blue eyes, approximately 6 feet tall, 210 pounds, with a medium build.

He has a tattoo arm band on his upper right arm and his final destination was supposed to be Laramie County Sheriff's Department in Wyoming.

Walp is described as a 37-year-old white male from Liberal, Kansas, with a medium build. His final destination was supposed to be Seward County Sheriff's Department in Kansas.

Any information or tips can be directed to the Major County Sheriff's Office at 580-227-4471.
