Officials: Convicted murderer excapes Mich. prison

IONIA, Mich. (AP) -- Officials say man serving life behind bars for murder in four 1993 deaths in Michigan has escaped from prison and may have abducted a woman before she got away in Indiana.

Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan says in an email that 40-year-old Michael David Elliot was discovered missing around 9:30 p.m. Sunday from the Ionia Correctional Facility in mid-Michigan.

Marlan says Elliot may have abducted a woman from Ionia using a knife or box cutter and drove to Elkhart in Indiana, where they stopped for gas. Marlan says the woman was able to escape at the gas station and call police. Marlan says Elliot left and was at large Monday morning.

Elliot is serving life sentences for first-degree murder. He also has convictions for arson and armed robbery.
