Quadruple Murderer Escapes Michigan Jail

Quadruple murderer Michael David Elliot is a free man today. At least until he's recaptured:

Officials in Michigan say the 40-year-old convicted killer escaped from prison overnight by digging a hole in the ground near a security fence. 

True to form, he then abducted a woman at knife point and took off with her in her car.

Escaped convict Michael ElliotHis hostage somehow managed to get away and notify police shortly thereafter, but Elliot -- and the shaken woman's vehicle -- are still nowhere to be found today.

Authorities believe this armed and dangerous quadruple murderer may now be in Indiana and ask that anybody who spots the suspect keep their distance and call 911 immediately.

Michael David Elliot is described as a middle-aged Caucasian male, about 5-foot-8 and 165 pounds. He has short dark hair and, when last sighted, was sporting a beard and a hooded sweatshirt.

A gas station attendant where the escapee stopped to refuel the stolen car says he's driving a red Jeep Liberty 2004 model registered in the state of Michigan. The license plate number is 5FTG55.

Elliot is a career criminal with a lengthy rap sheet that includes armed robbery, arson, breaking and entering, and homicide. He's also known to have used various aliases in the past, such as Michael D. Delarosa, Michael David Shreader, and Michael David Delarose.

A nationwide alert has been issued for his apprehension.
