Reward Offered After California Prisoners Escape

3:20 p.m.: (AP) - Authorities are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the capture of two dangerous prisoners who escaped from a California jail on Thanksgiving Eve.

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said Friday that based on numerous tips, authorities believe 33-year-old Rogelio Chavez and 26-year Laron Campbell are still in the San Francisco Bay area.

Authorities have asked people to keep an eye out for the men and call 911 - not approach them - if they are spotted.

Chavez has a distinctive face tattoo resembling an inky gash going through his left eye.

The pair sawed through the bars of a jail window late Wednesday and escaped.

Two other prisoners who broke out with them were quickly captured.
