Sheriff Steve Randolph says Foy and Walp overpowered two transport officers about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday and took the van on U.S. 412 north of Fairview, about 80 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.

Randolph says the van was found about 13 miles away in Ringwood, and an empty gun holster was found inside. The two are believed to driving a truck that was reported stolen from a nearby oilfield company.

Authorities say the inmates were being taken by the transport company to a correctional facility in Kansas.
