Colquitt County -- Still no sign of two scheming Colquitt County jail inmates whose escape was caught on tape.

Jail surveillance video shows Jason Lee Baird and D.J. Palmer Jr. making a run for it Wednesday night.

Deputies say they spent 13 hours chipping away at the concrete wall in their cell. After they got out, they threw a blanket over the razor wire and jumped into a waiting car.

Baird was in on burglary charges. It's his second escape. Palmer was in jail on methamphetamine charges.

If you have any information on them, call the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office.
