A massive search effort after a dozen inmates escaped from the Walker County Jail Sunday night has led to recapture of all but one of them.
Jailers discovered the 12 inmates missing about 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Authorities have not yet said how they broke out.
The Jasper Police Department posted this message on its Facebook page: "JPD has activated additional personnel to assist the Walker County Sheriff's Office in locating multiple escaped inmates from the Walker County Jail. We ask that downtown residents stay indoors and turn on all outdoor lighting."
