Fox news: 

BUTTE, Mont.  —  Two inmates, including a man who was once accused of plotting to kidnap David Letterman’s son, escaped from the Montana State Prison while working on the prison’s ranch Friday.

Kelly A. Frank, 45, and William J. Willcutt, 22, apparently left in one of the prison’s work trucks, officials said. Authorities were still searching for them late Friday.

Frank was arrested in 2005 on allegations he was plotting to kidnap Letterman’s young son and nanny from his Montana home. However, kidnapping-related charges were eventually dropped, and Frank was sentenced to 10 years for theft for overcharging Letterman for painting work.

Willcutt was in prison on theft and burglary charges, said Bob Anez, communications director for the Department of Corrections.

Both men were assigned to a crew that moves irrigation pipe on the prison’s ranch, just west of the prison.

A ranch supervisor first noticed Willcutt and the half-ton spray truck were missing at about 4:20 p.m. Friday, a prison news release said.

4:20.  Makes you wonder what the ranch supervisor was doing when his attention lapsed.
