A manhunt is undergoing for a serial rapist who has escaped from St. Clair prison in north Alabama Wednesday, officials said.
Corey Aris Davis, 30, was discovered missing from his cell at the St. Clair Correctional Facility during a security check about 8 p.m. Wednesday, the Department of Corrections said in a statement.
Agents from the ADOC Investigations and Intelligence Division were at the prison this morning investigating the circumstances that led to the escape. Details of how Davis escaped are pending.
Davis was arrested in 2016 and indicted on a number of crimes in Lauderdale County, including human trafficking, kidnapping, rape, sexual torture, burglary and impersonating a police officer.
He has received a life sentence after being sentenced in Lauderdale County in 2017.
Davis is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has strawberry blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing his inmate state whites when he escaped.
Authorities said anyone who sees Davis should call 911 or the Alabama Department of Corrections at 1-800-831-8825.
