PIKE COUNTY - The Pike County Sheriff's Office reports five inmates escaped from the county detention center late Saturday. The sheriff's office said in a press release it received a phone call from a family member of an inmate claiming that there had been an escape. A check of the facility revealed five inmates were missing. A check of the pod and the video system also showed that the escapees had removed a tamper resistant stainless steel shower head, gaining access to a service area and exiting the building.

The release said the jail was completed in 1994, and the shower controls were original. A complete inspection of the pods had been completed Friday afternoon, and no damage was detected at that time.

The sheriff's office reports the following inmates are gone from the facility:

Jacob Darnell

Jacob Darnell: Male, white, age 22 of Louisiana, Mo. Jacob Darnell was being held on charges of domestic assault and possession of a controlled substance.

Jason Darnell

Jason Darnell: Male, white, age 25 of Louisiana, Mo. Jason Darnell was being held in Pike County from the Missouri Department of Corrections and was scheduled for a hearing on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. He was in prison for possession of controlled substance.

Emanual Chatman

Emanuel G. Chatman: Male, black, age 27 of Louisiana, Mo. Chatman was being held on charge of domestic assault.

William Wilkerson Jr.

William John Thomas Wilkerson Jr.: Male, white, age 40 of Florissant, Mo. Wilkerson was being held on a charge of failure to appear on charge of stealing anhydrous ammonia in 2008.

Joseph Verive

Joseph Verive: Male, white, age 49 of Elsberry, Mo. Verive was being held on a charge of domestic assault. It is believed that Verive no longer has any local ties and may be headed to Arkansas. The sheriff's department also noted Verive now has a shorter beard and hair.

The investigation has confirmed that Chatman and the two Darnell brothers were seen in the Louisiana, Mo. area sometime between 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. on Saturday being driven by a black male in a green SUV, possibly a Chevy Suburban. Chatman is believed to possibly have contacts in St. Louis that may help them hide.

The sheriff's office also confirmed a 1993 turquoise Chevy Suburban was taken from a rural Louisiana location and is the suspect vehicle.

If you see these men or have knowledge of their whereabouts, the sheriff's office advises you to call the nearest law enforcement agency or the sheriff's office at 573-324-3202.
