CONCORD, N.H.—The U.S. Marshal for Maine says a burglary suspect who escaped from a New Hampshire jail has said the vendetta he intends to carry out against two people stems from a personal relationship.

U.S. Marshal Noel March says the two people David G. Hobson of Alfred, Maine, wants to harm are safe.

The 33-year-old Hobson escaped from an Ossipee, N.H., jail on Dec. 1 by scaling a fence. Police believe he has a gun.

March said Hobson is not Houdini or Whitey Bulger and he will be caught.

Aircraft have been buzzing overhead and dozens of heavily armed state troopers, deputy U.S. marshals and members of a violent-fugitive task force are searching for Hobson.

Hobson's family is being questioned by police and have had their homes searched.
