Transcript for Manhunt Continues for Escaped Washington Mental Patient
All right, George, now to the manhunt under way for one of the men that broke free from a mental hospital. His accomplice in custody but he is still at large and Jim Avila has the latest from Lakewood, Washington. Good morning, Jim. Reporter: A couple of fresh, strong leads overnight but police have so far come up empty in their intense search for what they say is a dangerous criminal on the loose from this mental hospital. Reporter: This morning, the manhunt intensifying for Anthony Garver, one of two violent patients who escaped from a Washington state mental hospital Wednesday night thought to be moving east these are pictures of Garver buying a bus ticket to Spokane two hours after the escape. Encouraging the public 0 pay attention if they can I meanwhile you're driving around, if someone is out of place, we'll chase down every tip. Reporter: He is believed to be dangerous seen here in this 2013 surveillance video at a McDonald's with a woman he's accused of brutally murdering. He was arrested and sent to western state hospital after being found incompetent to stand trial. That's what's making us really nervous is that it's a pretty serious crime, the worst you can imagine and he's got mental illness so we don't know what he's thinking. We have no idea -- he could be just trying to escape and go someplace but the opportunity to commit a crime is there if he's out and that's what we want to prevent. Reporter: Police say the 28-year-old Garver escaped from the hospital through a loose window sometime after 6:00 P.M. On Wednesday. He escaped with 59-year-old mark Alexander Adams. Adams taken into custody Thursday in de mind, Washington, this just hours after he was spotted boarding a local bus. Police say he took several modes of transportation throughout the night. Now authorities are pleading for the public's help in capturing his partner Garver. I think we can all, you know, make that guess if they don't get their medication their condition will deteriorate and will create a different person. Reporter: Police across the state in Spokane say he actually showed up at his parents' house yesterday afternoon but when they called police, he ran. George. Okay, Jim, thanks very much.
