America’s Most Wanted to feature North Carolina prison escapee

POLKTON – The search for escaped inmate Jeffery Manchester will be featured on America’s Most Wanted Saturday, Sept. 18 at 9 p.m.

Officials from the Division of Prisons and Brown Creek Correctional Institution asked the nationally broadcast show to produce a segment on Manchester’s escape in hopes that someone may have seen him and report his whereabouts.  Dozens of Brown Creek CI employees participated in the dramatization filmed Aug. 18 at the prison.

Manchester escaped June 15, 2004 from Brown Creek CI where he was serving a 45-year sentence for kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering. Prison officials say he was discovered missing during a daily head count.
