Dubose and Rowe both have extensive criminal histories.

The prisoners were part of a group of some 30 inmates being transported by bus by two armed guards. Sills called the prisoners "dangerous beyond description" after their Tuesday sunrise escape.

"This is Day 3, and we are aggressively as a unified body and unified group, we are pursuing them whether it's here in the state of Georgia or if they have left", Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge David Levalley told Regan.

The reward for information leading to their arrest grew Wednesday to $91,000, contributed by multiple agencies, the sheriff's office said.

The escapees are believed to be in a stolen white Ford F-250 pickup truck.

As of 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sills said escapees Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe had been gone almost 36 hours since the truck was taken.

Authorities say two Georgia inmates serving long prison sentences and "dangerous beyond description" overpowered and killed two guards on a prison bus before fleeing in a stolen auto. Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue were killed in the process. David LeValley, agent in charge of the FBI's Atlanta office, told reporters that "we are expanding, not shrinking, our effort to find these individuals".

According to officials, the two are armed with.40 caliber Glock pistols that belonged to the officers.

New York State Correctional Officer Police Benevolent Association added $15,000 to the reward fund for the capture of the two Georgia State inmates who allegedly shot and killed two correction officers Tuesday morning during a prison transport and escaped.

They continued to monitor the interstate exit ramps into Thursday evening.

The inmates were last held at Baldwin State Prison in Georgia. He was serving time at Baldwin State Prison for armed robbery in Elbert County.

The reward for information leading to the capture of two escaped Georgia prison inmates accused of killing two corrections officers almost quadrupled as a statewide manhunt entered its third day.

"We showed him the pictures and he said they looked similar, but it probably wasn't them", Malphrus said.
