UDPATE 7/29:

State police have told 5 News that both inmates that were on the loose have been apprehended in the Richwood area of Nicholas County.

Details weren't immediately available.
Pennington and Morehead escaped from the medium-security prison in Pocahontas County early Sunday morning.
Warden Mark Williamson says prison officials believe the inmates scaled a chain-link fence at the rear of the prison.
The 40-year-old Pennington was serving a sentence for first-degree murder and arson charges in Kanawha County. The 48-year-old Morehead was serving a sentence for sexual assault in Nicholas County.


State police are looking for two men who apparently escaped from the Denmar Correctional Facility in Pocahontas County around 1:30 Sunday morning.

The pair are Thomas Pennington and Larry Morehead.

Pennington is serving a sentence for Murder and Sexual Assault. He is from Kanawha County.

Morehead is serving a sentence for sexual assault and is from Nicholas County.

Anyone with information is asked to call their local state police detachment.
