LANSING, Kan. (AP) _ Lansing Correctional Facility officials say
a 59-year-old child sex offender has escaped.
The prison says Gary Leslie Furthmyer's escape was discovered
early Wednesday. He escaped from his minimum security assignment at
a steam plant but further details were not available.
Furthmyer is serving a six- to 25-year sentence for a 1985
conviction in Sedgwick County for indecent liberties with a child
and aggravated failure to appear. He previously escaped in 1988 and
returned to prison in 1993.
