HENRIETTA, MO (KCTV) - Officers are searching for a man who was able to escape the Ray County Jail, and he may be making his way to Kansas City.

The Ray County Sheriff's Department said Jeremy Glenn Miller forced his way through a ceiling of a tank about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, allowing entry into the building attic.

In the attic, he forced the metal fencing, allowing access to the jail garage area and then outside access from the jail.

People who live feet from the jail are on edge.

"I was a little nervous to come out onto the my front porch because this door here doesn't lock. I was nervous about getting into my truck because he might be hidden in my back seat or something," Georgia Bowdson said.

Bowdson lives just across the street from the jail with her husband, three children and their dog.

"I made my husband come out and get the dog because I didn't want to go outside," she said.

Now, she says she is leaving town as quickly as possible since it is the second time her family has had to deal with this.

"Safety of the kids ... move out to the sticks somewhere," Bowdson said. "2002 or 2003 we lived on down the road and somebody escaped. Cops were shining their flashlights through the windows."

And she doesn't want to go through that nightmare again.

"I just hope they catch him," Bowdson said.

Several law enforcement agencies including the Kansas City, MO, Police Department are helping with the search.

Miller has family in Grandview and Kansas City and may be headed in that direction.

He was held since last December on a probation violation. His original charge was felony property damage.

Miller is said to be 6'1" tall and weighs about 170 pounds. He escaped wearing an orange jumpsuit and a white T-shirt.
