    A man who escaped from a Wyoming corrections center and the woman who helped him may be heading to Texas, authorities allege.

    The Casper Star-Tribune reports Richard Fountaine is still missing after he left the Casper Re-Entry Center Dec. 28.

    According to a search warrant filed in Natrona County Circuit Court, Fountaine climbed a wall and chain-link fence before getting into an SUV.

    The document states that authorities believe the employee gave Fountaine a cellphone while he was in the facility and helped him escape.
