Officials say that Cedric Joseph Marks escaped from a private prisoner transport.

His shirt was later found.

The manhunt is being carried out by the Conroe Police Department, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the article stated.

Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes named NFL's MVP and top offensive player
Mahomes got 41 votes from the writers, far outdistancing New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who got just nine votes. Mahomes had 50 touchdowns for 5,097 yards and 12 interceptions on the season. "I'm so humbled", he said.

Authorities have been interested in Marks after his ex-girlfriend Jenna Scott and her friend Michael Swearingin were reported missing last month, KHOU reported.

The search for Marks drew a massive law enforcement presence north of Houston, with part of Interstate 45 being shut down during the manhunt.

Marks was arrested in MI last month on a Texas charge alleging that on August 21, he broke into Scott's home in Temple, which is about 100 kilometres north of Austin. It is unclear where Marks was being transferred to and from when he escaped.

The affidavit said that he told Scott "you know what I am capable of. your entire family and all of your friends will need witness protection if you call the police".

The protective order request was denied.

Marks was arrested in MI just a couple days later with another girlfriend. The pair met through Tinder, an online dating app. Court records say Marks threatened Scott every time she attempted to end the relationship.

Marks escaped after the private transport company extraditing him stopped for food, Montgomery Sheriff's Lt. Scott Spencer wrote on Twitter.

Another Marks ex-girlfriend, April Pease, the mother of his child, disappeared in 2009 in Minnesota. The Washington state woman had accused him of domestic violence.

When Scott went to investigate a sound in her home, she found Marks.

Pease went missing in March 2009 and Marks got custody of their son.

Scott filed for a protective order against Marks in August, alleging he broke into her home while her daughter, who was 9, was present and took her mobile phone to prevent her from calling 911.
