SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) -- Authorities have been searching for an inmate who escaped from the Pettis County jail.

29-year-old Brandon McGee, of Sedalia, escaped from the jail late Thursday by dismantling shower room equipment and escaping through the hole into a service corridor that led to an exit.

Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Bond says he escaped while staff were preparing for the nightly lockdown.

McGee was described as a white male, 5-feet-9-inches tall, 130 pounds with brown eyes, brown hair and a goatee.

He was being held on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit device.
