The Manitoba RCMP issued a dangerous persons alert Monday night for residents in the The Pas and Flin Flon areas with a pair of inmates at large after escaping The Pas Correctional Centre.
And at 11:30 p.m. Monday the Saskatchewan RCMP extended the dangerous persons alert to the Cumberland House, Sask. area.
