HALL COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Hall County officials are searching for an escaped inmate.

Edward Cantrell, 46, fled deputies after court proceedings in relation to violating a restraining order on Tuesday afternoon.

Cantrell was among a group of inmates being escorted from the courthouse back to the Hall County Jail.

Cantrell was able to hide in the alcove of a locked doorway on the outside of the building.

He got into a nearby work truck which had the keys in the ignition and fled the area.

Just before 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, police recovered the truck that Edwards escaped in, according to police.

Cantrell is considered dangerous. If you see him, call 911.
