Authorities in southeastern Illinois are searching for three men who broke out of a county jail.

The White County Sheriff's Office in Carmi says the men used a pipe to break a hole in an outside concrete block and brick wall early Saturday morning.

Corrections officers discovered 24-year-old Zachery Shock, 28-year-old Justin Bray and 61-year-old Johnny Tipton missing. Surveillance video showed the men running along an alley outside the jail about 3 a.m.

The sheriff's office says Shock was awaiting trial for murder. Bray was jailed for unlawful use of a weapon and resisting police. Tipton was being held for possession of stolen property.

The men are considered dangerous.
