HODGEN, Okla. (AP) _ A convicted forger from Bartlesville has escaped from the Jim Hamilton Correctional Center in southeastern Oklahoma.

Authorities say Jody Lee Love disappeared from the prison at Hodgen during the weekend.

Love is 42, white and 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.

Love is the fourth inmate to escape from the prison since March.

Kenneth Knutson and Steven Capps escaped earlier this month. Knutson was recaptured near Amarillo, Texas, while Capps remains loose.

Eric Bradford escaped in March and was recaptured in Tulsa in June.
