US Marshal says fugitives may be in Arkansas

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- The U.S. Marshal for Arizona says an escaped inmate and his fiance may be in Arkansas.

David Gonzales says a couple who robbed a store Wednesday morning in Gentry, Ark., fits the description of John McCluskey and his fiancee, Casslyn Welch.

Gentry is in northwest Arkansas, near Bentonville, where Welch's mother lives.

Gonzales says they are trying to obtain surveillance film from the robbery.

McCluskey and Welch have eluded authorities since he and two other inmates escaped from an Arizona prison on June 30. McCluskey and Welch were last seen in Montana near the Canadian border.
