The authorities on Tuesday were searching for two men who had escaped from a jail in Central Arkansas and were considered to be dangerous, in a manhunt that has mobilized law enforcement agencies across the state, officials said.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on Tuesday that officers found out Monday morning that two detainees were missing from the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center in Pine Bluff, about 40 miles southeast of Little Rock.

Officials are investigating how the men, Noah Roush, 22, and Jatonia Bryant, 23, escaped undetected, Maj. John Bean, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said on Tuesday. They likely fled within the last two days, he said, and they are not believed to be armed.
