An ongoing manhunt for 12 inmates that escaped from an Alabama jail Sunday night has returned 11 of them to custody, with only one remaining at large.

The inmates escaped from Walker County Jail in northern Alabama, and officials are still investigating how they managed the jailbreak, CNN reported Monday. Police have offered a $500 reward for the remaining inmate, Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, who was serving time for drug offenses.

Police in nearby Jasper County assisted Walker County police in the manhunt, requesting on Facebook that Jasper residents remain indoors and turn on all outdoor lights.

Two of the escaped inmates were in prison for attempted murder, others were serving time for domestic violence, theft, and drug crimes.

The 12 escapees are: Steven Blake Lamb, 28, of Quinton; Christopher Michael Smith, age 19, of Jasper; Michael Adam McGuff, 30, of Jasper; Larry Inman Jr., 29, of Parrish; Ethan Howard Pearl, 24, of Jasper; Johnny Richard Hunter, 26, of Jasper; Christopher Cole Spain, 18, of Jasper; Kristopher Keith Secrest, 20, of Oakman; Quadrekas Latoddrick Key, 21, of Parrish; Timothy Chaz Cooper, 28, of Cordova; Steven Sanford Hartley, 27, of Hoover.

The Walker County Jail has a capacity of 250 inmates, and jail staff only discovered that the 12 were missing when they happened across empty cells during routine maintenance Sunday night, NBC reported.
