PAYETTE, Idaho (AP) - Authorities in southwestern Idaho have placed two schools on lockdown and are searching for an inmate who escaped from the Payette County Jail on Tuesday morning.

The Payette Police Department says 27-year-old Nicholas Grove escaped at about 8:30 a.m. by climbing a fence topped with razor wire.

The 5-foot-11, 150-pound Grove was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and black boxers.

Police say Payette Primary School and Westside School have been locked down as a precaution.
