KINGSTON, Mo. (AP) — Authorities in northwest Missouri are searching for an inmate who escaped from the Caldwell County Detention Center.

Columbia police say in a release that 23-year-old Brian James Adkison escaped early Sunday from the Caldwell County jail in Kingston, where he was being held on kidnapping and other charges.

Police say Adkison is considered dangerous and has been known to frequent the Columbia area, but there is no local address for him.

In June, Adkison was captured after leading law enforcement on a nearly week-long search in the Lake of the Ozarks area, after he was accused of kidnapping his former girlfriend near her home in Hamilton in Caldwell County.

Adkison had been charged in May with rape and sexual assault charges in Boone County after a woman told Columbia police she had been raped by an acquaintance.
