Police in Knox County said Friday morning they've found the truck they say an Estill County escapee stole to make his getaway.
The discovery was made at around 11 a.m. Daniel Patterson, 34, was on his way to a court hearing Wednesday when officers say he picked the lock on his handcuffs and took off. State troopers say he stole a black 1991 Dodge Dakota with a red pinstripe, which they say they found near Kentucky 11 in Knox County.
The sheriff's department and Barbourville police say they've searched one house for Patterson with no luck, but they're still searching the area.
