WALTERS — Authorities are searching for an inmate who escaped the Cotton County jail.

Authorities say Robert Lee Turk was discovered missing early Monday from the jail in Walters. Authorities tell a local newspaper that Turk somehow managed to open the lock on his cell and break down a door to escape the jail.

Turk was being held on a felony count of shooting with intent to kill.

Authorities say Turk has escaped the county jail before.

The sheriff's office says authorities have set up a perimeter around the town and are checking every vehicle that passes.
