CORPUS CHRISTI - An alert was sent out to all law enforcement in South Texas about a federal prisoner who escaped near Three Rivers this morning.
U.S. Marshals are looking for Jose Guadalupe Aguilar. As Aguilar is a federal prisoner, officials are not releasing any information about the incident. We are not aware of his age, a detailed description, or why he was in federal custody.
Aguilar was last known to be heading down Highway 72. At the time he was wearing a white shirt and grey shorts. Authorities were told he should be considered armed and dangerous.
A helicopter unit was called in from San Antonio to assist with the search.
The Federal Corrections Institute, just 8 miles west of Three Rivers, houses minimum and medium security federal inmates.
