Posted: Updated:

SULPHUR SPRINGS, Texas — The hunt for a capital murder suspect and a convicted drug offender who escaped from an East Texas jail has turned to a missing crossover SUV.

The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office says Brian Allen Tucker and John Marlin King remain at large.

Sgt. Brad Cummings says searchers are now seeking a black 2010 Saturn Vue reported stolen in Sulphur Springs Wednesday afternoon. The vehicle had Texas plates with the number CR6D425. Inside was a nickel-plated .22-caliber Derringer pistol.

The inmates fled the jail in Sulphur Springs Tuesday morning. Sulphur Springs is about 75 miles northeast of Dallas.

Tucker is awaiting trial on a capital murder charge. Cummings says he has short hair and "drop dead" tattooed on the back of his head.

King pleaded guilty last month to drug possession.
