DORR, Mich. (WZZM) - Police are once again searching an area west of Dorr for two escaped inmates.
Kenneth Grauman and Gregory Bradshaw have been on the run since they escaped from the Lake County Residential Re-entry Program on Saturday, September 29.
Lt. Frank Baker tells WZZM 13 that Allegan County Sheriff's deputies set up a perimeter Wednesday afternoon along 142nd Ave. and 22nd St. after a vehicle was stolen around 3:30 p.m.
Authorities believe Grauman and Bradshaw stole a 2000 white Ford Taurus with the license plate BDN 6542. Police agencies across West Michigan are being advised to be on the lookout for that vehicle.
Police believe the two are traveling with their girlfriends, Brittany Rector, 17, and Laura Grauman, 29. She is Kenneth Grauman's cousin. Police have not been able to locate either woman.
Wednesday afternoon the Kent County Sheriff's Department issued a community alert, warning people to lock their homes, garages, and vehicles.
It's not known if the suspects are armed, but authorities say a home
was burglarized in the area and guns were stolen. Residents are being advised call 911 and not approach or confront the suspects.
As a precaution, Wayland Public Schools were put on lockdown for the search Wednesday afternoon. The lockdown order was lifted a short time later.
On Monday, police searched the same area extensively after spotting Grauman and Bradshaw in a green Jeep, but the search was called off around 11 p.m.
WZZM 13 has a crew on the scene, we will have more information as it becomes available.
