The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office tweeted Sunday that Cedric Marks escaped about 40 miles north of Houston and is considered "extremely unsafe".
Marks is a professional MMA fighter and is considered extremely unsafe.
The manhunt is being carried out by the Conroe Police Department, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the article stated.
The prisoner, identified as Cedric Joseph Marks, was last seen in the area of the 800 block of North Loop 336 West, authorities said.
He was last seen in an orange jumpsuit, with no shirt, and restraints.
Draft framework for Afghan peace 'agreed'
Khalilzad did not confirm the statement - or his remarks to the Times - and there was no immediate comment from the U.S. Afghan security forces are already taking staggering losses, with 45,000 killed since late 2014, and morale is low.
Like Scott, Pease alleged that Marks had choked her unconscious on more than one occasion, according to a court custody investigator. According to reports out of Central Texas, the Scott and Swearingin cases have Bloomington police taking a second look at Marks, although he had an alibi 10 years ago. The shirt was found by law enforcement after he fled.
It was not immediately clear how Marks escaped.
Marks had been extradited from MI after he was accused of breaking into the Temple, Texas, home of Jenna Scott, his ex-girlfriend, according to KCEN.
She said murder warrants were issued on Sunday (Monday NZT) for Marks in last month's killings of an ex-girlfriend, Jenna Scott, and a friend of hers, Michael Swearingin, who disappeared on January 4 and were found buried in a shallow grave in Clearview, Oklahoma, on January 15.
Hartley said Marks' and Pease's son was placed into protective custody in 2009 and he doesn't know the son's current location.
