CLINTON, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say they have found the pickup truck that two escaped inmates used after escaping from the Jackson County jail.

KCRG-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2m2A35m) the truck was found Wednesday in Clinton, about 30 miles southeast of Maquoketa (muh-KOH’-keh-tuh), where the men pried open a gate and escaped Tuesday from the jail.

Police are still searching for 19-year-old Andrew Combs and 20-year-old Brian Willey.

Court records say Willey has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial on a burglary charge. The records say Combs has pleaded not guilty to burglary and robbery counts and is also awaiting trial.

Officers found orange shorts the men were wearing when they escaped.

Police say there were able to steal the truck because the keys had been left inside.
