On Monday, someone reported seeing a vehicle in the area of 87th Street and Interstate 35 that had a license tag associated with the escapee, according to Overland Park police.
But police have not been able to verify the report.
Derrick Estell escaped from a county jail in Arkansas on July 28 by diving head-first through a slim window into the jail lobby. He then sprinted outside and got into a waiting car that authorities believe was driven by his girlfriend. His mother is charged with aiding his escape.
Authorities in southern Missouri believe Estell stole a blue 2006 Dodge Ram pickup truck after breaking into a home in Dallas County over the weekend.
Estell has a lengthy criminal record and should be considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
