The search continues for an escapee from the Tulsa County Jail.

Tulsa Police and the Washington County Sheriff's Office are looking for Brandon Florence. Police say Florence, who is from Bartlesville, impersonated another inmate named John Proffitt by using his ID and other information. The men look similar and apparently switched ID's and beds on Wednesday night. Proffitt was scheduled to be released Thursday.

Brandon Florence had been jailed for pawning merchandise that didn't belong to him.
