State prison officials said in a news release Friday that 59-year-old Gary Leslie Furthmyer is believed to be in the downtown Kansas City, Mo., area. Possible sightings have been reported at Kansas City homeless shelters.

Furthmyer escaped from his minimum security assignment at a steam plant at the Lansing prison. He was serving a six- to 25-year sentence out of Sedgwick County for indecent liberties with a child and aggravated failure to appear.

Furthmyer is 5-foot-9 and 185 lbs, with brown hair and blue eyes. He also uses the alias of Frank Schell.

Officials say it's possible he has grown his hair and has additional facial hair.

Grown his hair? He's gonna look like Steven Wright on a bad day. Craftier than most of your loose cannons apparently. He looks pretty fit for 59. Is there sumthin' to a prison diet?

I work Downtown and I sure have not seen an increased police presence. Are we sure anyone is looking for him?

Are they actively seeking him?
Is there someone from the State of Kansas, who let him walk away, out there actually looking for him and trying to get him behind bars again?

Or, are they just waiting to see if he shows up in jail somewhere, maybe for loitering or stealing, or maybe for doing horrible things to more children?

Probably the latter; hope he loiters or steals.
