Escaped Arizona Inmates May be Hiding Out in Yellowstone National Park

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal authorities say two men who
escaped from a private Arizona prison and a woman thought to have
helped them are believed to be in the area around Yellowstone
National Park.

The U.S. Marshals Service says information has developed within
the past two days that indicates Tracy Province, John McCluskey and
Casslyn Welch may be hiding in portions of the park that span
Montana and Wyoming.

Authorities say it's now believed Province has separated from
McCluskey and Welch.

The manhunt intensified after forensic evidence linked at least
one of the inmates to the killings of an Oklahoma couple in New
Mexico earlier this week. The couple's badly burned skeletal
remains were found in a charred camper on a ranch in Santa Rosa.

New Mexico State Police spokesman Peter Olson calls the search
an "urgent situation" given the New Mexico slayings.
