AUGUSTA — Maine law enforcement officials are looking for three inmates who walked away from two different prisons.

Skowhegan and Madison police are looking for 20-year-old Dylan Perkins, who escaped from the Somerset County Jail. He was scheduled to be released on July 27.

A jail official says Perkins, a minimum security inmate, was unloading a truck with other inmates when he scaled a fence and ran into the woods around 1 p.m. on Monday.

Police and a dog team also were searching in Glenburn for two men who escaped from the Charleston Correctional Facility on Sunday night. An official says 20-year-old Randall Moulton of Bangor and 25-year-old Phillip Gardiner of Belfast were in prison for burglary and other charges. Moulton was to be released later this year and Gardiner in 2014.
