A child sex offender who escaped from Lansing Correctional Facility on April 18 is still eluding authorities.

State prison officials said in a news release Friday that
59-year-old Gary Leslie Furthmyer is believed to be in the downtown
Kansas City, Mo., area. Possible sightings have been reported at
Kansas City homeless shelters.

Furthmyer escaped from his minimum security assignment at a
steam plant at the Lansing prison. He was serving a six- to 25-year
sentence out of Sedgwick County for indecent liberties with a child
and aggravated failure to appear.

Furthmyer is 5-foot-9 and 185 lbs, with brown hair and blue
eyes. He also uses the alias of Frank Schell.

Officials say it's possible he has grown his hair and has
additional facial hair.
