LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas prison officials say a convicted murderer who escaped from prison in 2009 while wearing a guard uniform has escaped again.

The Arkansas Department of Corrections said Monday that 49-year-old Calvin Adams was confirmed missing after a search of the East Arkansas Regional Unit in the community of Brickeys. He’s serving life without parole.

Prison spokeswoman Dina Tyler confirmed that that Adams also escaped in 2009. She said she didn’t yet have details on the most recent escape.

On May 29, 2009, Adams and another inmate walked out of the Cummins Unit wearing guard uniforms and drove away in a car that was left for them. They were arrested in New York state four days later.

Adams was convicted of capital murder in 1995 in the kidnapping and shooting death of a man.
