Isiah Bare was captured without incident.

Bare, along with three fellow inmates, appeared to have gotten out through an air conditioning unit around 1:30 Thursday morning, Woods said.

The Catlettsburg police chief says the men followed the air conditioning duct to the roof and then jumped off.

Authorities say if anyone sees the inmates, don't approach them but try to get as best of a description as possible and call 911.

Bentley and Childers, both from Louisa, could possibly be in or headed to Lawrence County where both have strong ties.

Funny how escapees want to come back to Lawrence County. They're guaranteed probation. Doesn't anyone care but me? The Boyd County jail is a joke along with the Lawrence Co. justice system. The whole bunch in both counties needs to be fired !!
