MCDONALD COUNTY, Mo. (KY3) - Three inmates escaped from the McDonald County Detention Center after reportedly attacking a detention officer Saturday afternoon.

The McDonald County Sheriff’s Office says it happened around 5 p.m. Saturday, adding that all three suspects are considered dangerous.

Authorities are looking for the following suspects:

  • Shun’tavion Ladarrias Thomas, 23-year-old Black man last seen wearing white pants and a white shirt.
  • David Molina, 49-year-old Hispanic man last seen wearing orange and white stripe pants and a white shirt.
  • Carmelo Miguel Burgos, 27-year-old Hispanic man last seen wearing orange and white stripe pants and no shirt.

Authorities have followed up on several leads since Saturday, but have not yet tracked down the inmates.

“We continue to stress for everyone to please lock and secure your residences, out buildings, vehicles, and any farm or utility vehicles,” said the sheriff’s office in an update Sunday.

If you happen to see any of these three suspects, the sheriff’s office says you should not attempt to apprehend or confront them. Instead, call your nearest law enforcement agency or the McDonald County Sheriff’s Office at 417-223-4319.
