2 escapees from Washington County jail sought

Two men who escaped from the Washington County jail are still at large, according to sheriff's deputies.

The Delta Democrat Times reports  that one of the escapees was captured Friday. The newspaper reports that Parker Huddleston, 21, was found hiding in the yard of a home.

Meanwhile, deputies on Saturday said they were still looking for two other escapees. Authorities were looking for Emanuel Richardson, 19, and Howard Ray Clemons, 48. Both men are considered armed and dangerous.

The men escaped after 9 p.m. Thursday from the Alfred "Al" Rankins Sr. Washington County Regional Correctional Facility.

The Greenville Police Department and U.S. Marshals were helping in the search.
