Manhunt underway for escaped Arizona inmate

PHOENIX -- Sheriff's officials in Maricopa County are looking for an inmate they say turned up missing from the county's Lower Buckeye Jail Sunday.

Sheriff's spokesman officer Christopher Hegstrom says Adan Orduno, Jr., was discovered missing just before 9 a.m. He's considered extremely dangerous.

The 26-year-old was last seen wearing the jail's black-and-white striped clothing. Hegstrom says jail officers are trying to determine if he escaped or is somehow hiding somewhere in the sprawling complex that includes Sheriff Joe Arpaio's tent city.

Orduno has served time in state prison for burglary, theft and aggravated assault. Maricopa County court records show his latest case was for promoting prison contraband.
