State police and Department of Corrections officers continue to search today for a 51-year-old convict who escaped from a state prison in Bridgewater on Friday, authorities said.
Investigators have followed leads in Massachusetts and other states in the search for Manson Brown, state police said in a statement.
Authorities said today they had developed new information about Brown, who has been described as black, about 5-foot-8, and weighing 145 pounds. While they had previously released a picture of him without glasses, they said today he often wears them. They also noted that he plays chess, works out frequently, and is extremely physically fit. More information is posted on the America's Most Wanted website.
State police asked anyone who sees Brown not to approach him, but to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call the state police at (508) 820-2121, authorities said.
