MADRAS, Ore. (AP) - Bloody clothes that apparently belonged to a Deer Ridge prison escapee were found in an empty lot in downtown Madras.

Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins told KTVZ (https://bit.ly/1fU9U1v ) the blood will be compared with blood found in a stolen car and on a fence at the Deer Ridge Correctional Institution where Clinton Orvill Swearingen escaped Sunday.

Police are still looking for the 31-year-old who had been serving time on theft and burglary convictions in Linn County.

It was the first escape from inside the 7-year-old minimum security prison which holds more than 760 inmates.
