Escaped Mississippi murderer still on the run. Have you seen him?

Law enforcement officers continued to search for a convicted murderer who escaped state custody Sunday morning and have now offered a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to his capture.

Mississippi Department of Corrections officials said Arthur Lestrick, 40, was discovered missing early Sunday morning from the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman.

Officals said they believe he left the facility on foot from a work camp.

Lestrick is serving a life sentence for capital murder for a crime in Copiah County.

Corrections officials say that Lestrick is a black male, with brown eyes and black hair. He weighs approximately 140 pounds and stands approximately 5-foot, 5 inches tall.

If you see him, do not approach him, but contact MDOC at 662-745-6611 or 601-573-5720.
