There's still no sign of Haskell County Jail escapee Edward Branch. Branch, 36, broke out of the jail in Stigler Monday and has reportedly been seen in the small town of Keota, about 10 miles away.

Tactical teams have been looking for Branch on the ground and from the air. Until he's caught, residents will be on high alert.

Branch has a long criminal history and is mostly recently accused of holding a knife to an elderly woman's throat and robbing her. Deputies arrested Branch's mother, Sara, on Tuesday for harboring a fugitive and obstruction of justice.
