Two inmates are on the run from authorities after escaping outside out of Major County in a stolen vehicle. 

Authorities report two inmates, Andrew Jason Foy and Darren Walp initially overtook two transport officers in an inmate transport van near Hwy 412 in Orienta, Major County at approximately 3:25 a.m. Tuesday.

Around 9:30 a.m. investigators recovered the van near the town of Ringwood, Oklahoma. After investigating the transport van, deputies discovered a discarded police belt with the handgun missing from the pistol; leading them to believe the inmates could be armed and dangerous.

 The transport van was intended to transfer inmates from the central region to correctional facilities in Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming, and Kansas. 

After ditching the van, authorities state the inmates stole a maroon 2006 Dodge Ram from an oilfield service yard, with Oklahoma license plate number DEL244. 

Andrew Foy is described as a white male, blue eyes, approximately 6' tall, 210 lbs., with a medium build. Foy has a tattoo armband on his upper right arm. His final destination was intended for the Laramie County Sheriff's Department in Wyoming.

Authorities describe Darren Walp as a white male from Liberal Kansas, with a medium build. His final destination was intended for the Seward County Sheriff's Department in Kansas.

Direct all information and tips to the Major County Sheriffs Office at (580) 227-4471.
