Murderer Michael David Elliot remains on the loose after he escaped from a Michigan prison, abducted a woman, and fled in her car on Sunday. The woman got away in Indiana.

Elliot, 40, is serving life behind bars for murder in four 1993 deaths. He was discovered missing about 9:30 p.m. Sunday from the Ionia Correctional Facility in mid-Michigan, Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan said in an email.

Elliot abducted a woman from Ionia using a knife or box cutter and drove to Elkhart, Ind., roughly 100 miles southwest of Ionia and near the Indiana-Michigan state line, where they stopped for gas. The woman got away at the gas station and called police, Marlan said.

Police made contact with the woman about 11:50 p.m. Sunday. Elliot left the gas station and was at large Monday morning, Marlan said.

"Citizens should immediately call 911 if they observe anything suspicious or possibly become aware of the whereabouts of ... Elliot," Marlan said in the email.

Officers from the Michigan Department of Corrections, Michigan State Police and other law enforcement agencies are searching for Elliot, according to The Associated Press.

According to the MDOC, Elliot is serving life sentences for first-degree murder. He also has convictions for arson and armed robbery.

An emergency count was conducted at the Ionia Correctional Facility and all other prisoners have been accounted for, Marlan said.
