The search continues for a convicted forger from Bartlesville who escaped from the Jim Hamilton Correctional Center in southeastern Oklahoma last weekend.

Authorities say Jody Lee Love escaped from the prison at Hodgen.

Love is about 5-feet-7 and 150 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He also has several tattoos and has used the aliases of Jody James and James Love.

Prison officials say a farmer believes Love has been hiding in various buildings on his property along the Blackfork River.

Arkansas authorities are also on the lookout for Love.
