OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say they are confident an escaped inmate is in the Omaha area.

The Nebraska State Patrol says officers were pursuing leads Tuesday in the search for 52-year-old Timothy Clausen. Investigators believe he’s in the Omaha area and are putting greatest emphasis on the city’s northeast area.

Clausen and 37-year-old Armon Dixon escaped the Lincoln Correctional Center on Friday morning by climbing into a laundry truck and then cutting a hole in the truck’s roof.

Police captured Dixon in Lincoln on Saturday.

Clausen was serving a 50-year prison sentence for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 12 and up to five years for tampering with a juror.

Police say Clausen is dangerous and people should call 911 if they have information about him
