Escaped inmate still at large in southern Maine

The Associated Press

SANFORD, Maine — Residents of several Maine communities remain on edge as police continue to search for a man who escaped from a New Hampshire jail.

Authorities say there have been no confirmed sightings of 33-year-old David Glenn Hobson since the discovery over the weekend of an SUV near the Sanford-Alfred-Lyman town lines. Blood was found in the vehicle, suggesting that Hobson was injured last Thursday while scaling a razor wire fence at the Carroll County House of Corrections in Ossipee, N.H.

Police believe Hobson — who’s considered armed and dangerous — may have headed to the area with the intent of injuring two people.

Local residents say they’re worried, particularly with children heading back to school after the weekend.

Hobson’s father has been accused of leaving supplies outside his home for his son after he escaped.
