COLUMBIA — A prisoner being held on numerous charges including rape and kidnapping escaped at about midnight Saturday from the Caldwell County Detention Center in Kingston.

Brian James Adkison, 23, is associated with several Missouri cases in several jurisdictions, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department.

The detention center at Kingston is about a two-hour drive from Columbia. Officers do not know which way Adkison ran when he escaped, according to a news release from the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Adkison has been known to spend time in and around Columbia, but there is no local address for him, according to the police department's news release.

Adkison was barefoot and wearing white boxer shorts when he escaped from the detention center.

Several departments were searching for Adkison. The police ask people not to approach Adkison if they see him; he is considered dangerous. Anyone with information should call 911, the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Department at 816-586-2681 or the Missouri State Highway Patrol at 816-387-2345.

Supervising editor is Shaina Cavazos.
