Led by the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, multiple local, state and federal agencies are assisting in the investigation.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of Donnie Rowe and Ricky DuBose, they're asking you to call the U.S. Marshals at 877-WANTED 2.

"If somebody is helping them and we identify who they are, they will be prosecuted as parties to this crime", Sills said.

The inmates have been cellmates a couple of times in Georgia's prisons, had known each other for "quite a while" and may have planned the escape together, Department of Corrections Assistant Commissioner Ricky Myrick said.

A nationwide manhunt had intensified for the inmates - Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose - who had been armed and on the run since Tuesday, officials said.

Authorities confirm one of the escaped prisoners has ties to the "Ghostface Gangsters".

Two escaped inmates from Putnam County, Georgia, may have been spotted in Jasper County.

The reward for their capture has increased to $130,000.

The reward for information leading to the arrests of Rowe, 43, and Dubose, 24, continued to grow. He says "We do not offer rewards for someone to be brought in dead or alive".

By the time a Ford F-250 was reported stolen Wednesday morning in Morgan County, the inmates charged with killing two prison guards were long gone.

Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said the inmates fled from the bus near Eatonton, about 70 miles southeast of Atlanta.

"This black stripe, it's been on this badge more in the past year than ever before", Sills said, fighting back tears.

Also, FBI spokesman David LaValley said the manhunt has gone national and they need the public's help.

"He was parked in the rest area and saw two guys scoping out cars", Malphrus said.

The deceased security guards were Christopher Monica, a strapping 42-year-old man, and Curtis Billue, 58, an experienced and highly-regarded prison worker. Burial will follow in Heritage Memorial Park.

The two men are wanted for reportedly killing two Georgia state prison guards on a bus before fleeing in a stolen auto earlier this week.

They continued to monitor the interstate exit ramps into Thursday evening. The publication also says he was promoted to sergeant at Baldwin State Prison in 2012 and then took a job at the prison's transportation unit last summer.

The website states that Monica was a Chicago native and had lived in Baldwin County for the past 20 years.
