UPDATE 1/14/20:

The vehicle believe to have been used by the two inmates has been recovered in Huerfano County.

When 30-year-old Bryan Webb and 39-year-old Jerry Williams (seen above) escaped custody from the Custer County Jail on Saturday, the two stole a Blue Toyota Sienna.

That vehicle was recovered by deputies with the Huerfano County Sheriff's Office Tuesday morning around 10:30 a.m..

The vehicle was found in a grassy field adjacent to a home on W. Second Street heading out of Walsenburg. Unfortunately neither Webb or Williams were found with the stolen vehicle.

According to a Red Alert sent out by the Huerfano County Sheriff's Office to residents in the area, the two suspects are believed to still be in the Walsenburg area.

If you have any information on either man's whereabouts you are asked to contact your local law enforcement.

Original Story:

CUSTER COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Two inmates are on the run after escaping from custody in Custer County, and law enforcement across Colorado is on the lookout for the pair.

According to the Canon City Police Department, 30-year-old Bryan Webb and 39-year-old Jerry Williams (seen above) escaped custody on Saturday and are still on the loose.

The Custer County Sheriff's Office says the two inmates overpowered a detention deputy and locked her in a cell. Then they were able to take the jail keys and the deputy's radio, and they escaped.

The suspects left in a gray 2017 Toyota Sienna passenger van with the Colorado license plate AHO 854, but the vehicle was found at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Williams was being held on charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, illegal possession of a handgun, and domestic violence. Webb was being held on drug charges, introduction of contraband into a detention facility, and assault on a peace officer, according to the Custer County Sheriff's Office.

Police don't know if the pair are armed, but if you see them, don't try to make contact with them. Police say to call 911 if you spot the vehicle or the suspects.

District 70 says it has also placed all schools in the mountain region on exterior lockdown while authorities look for the two inmates in the area. They're believed to be in the mountain region of Rye Schools, according to the district.
