The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the capture of a convicted Arkansas killer who escaped while on a prison work crew.

The FBI in Little Rock announced the reward Wednesday for help in arresting 40-year-old Lloyd Jones.

The Arkansas Department of Correction says Jones disappeared Monday while on a work detail at the East Arkansas Unit at Brickeys, about 120 miles east of Little Rock. Department spokesman Solomon Graves said prison guards noticed Jones was missing from a work crew around noon.

Jones is serving a 60-year prison term for strangling 16-year-old Angela Allen and stuffing her body into a barrel.

The Brickeys unit is a maximum-security prison, but some inmate work programs include using prisoners in agriculture fields outside the prison walls.
