Gregory Bradshaw and Kenneth Grauman II were seen around 4 p.m. Monday along 142nd Avenue in Dorr. But now it appears they may have eluded police.

The men escaped from the Lake County Residential Reentry Program on Saturday. Authorities believe they were traveling in a green 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with Michigan license plate CLX 3644. The vehicle was stolen from Kent County.

Monday afternoon, authorities set up a perimeter along 142nd Avenue at 21st Street. Allegan County deputies, Michigan State Police and U.S. Marshals were all involved in the search. A member of the public also used an ultralight aircraft in the search until a state police helicopter arrived.

It's believed that Bradshaw and Grauman ditched the Jeep and are traveling on foot, hiding in a wooded area. Residents are being advised to lock their doors and call 911 if they spot anything suspicious.

Grauman and Bradshaw have criminal records involving weapons, assaults and drug offenses. Police said they have friends and family in Allegan County they may attempt to contact.

Grauman is 5 foot, 10 inches tall, weighs 155 pounds, and has red hair and blue eyes. Bradshaw is 5 foot, 11 inches, weighs 185 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes.
