Authorities are on the lookout for two escapees from Lansing Correctional Facility.

Prison officials said the two prisoners were confirmed missing at 6 p.m. Tuesday from the prison’s East Unit, where minimum custody inmates are housed.

The escapees are Chad Duane Amack, a 22-year-old serving a 23 month sentence based on a Shawnee County conviction for theft and aggravated burglary, and Matthew Glen Allender, 28, who is serving a 23-month sentence for two convictions of theft, also in Shawnee County.

Amack is a white male, 5-feet-9, 175 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair.

Allender is a white male, 5-feet-8, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Tuesday’s prison break was the second in less than two months at Lansing. On Sept. 14, 33-year-old Ronny Dale Peters escaped from the minimum-security unit. He was captured two days later in Gardner.

Amack and Allender are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information pertaining to their whereabouts should call 911 or the Lansing Correctional Facility at 913-727-3235.
