KANKAKEE, Ill. (AP) _ Authorities say they've found a 15-year-old girl who they had thought to be in the company of convicted murderer who escaped from jail.

Illinois State Police haven't said where or how officials found the girl. The inmate has not been found.

Kamron T. Taylor fled from the Jerome Combs Detention Center in Kankakee early Wednesday. Kankakee County Sheriff Timothy Bukowski says Taylor somehow escaped from his cell, hid inside the facility and then beat and choked the guard who was making rounds.

Bukowski says Taylor, a 23-year-old from Kankakee, is considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities had issued an alert for the teenager, believing she was with the inmate. Illinois State Police did not say if she had been with Taylor.
