Barksdale and his wife, Susan, are accused of faking a medical emergency in Blanding during a transport to Arizona. They then reportedly overpowered two security guards and escaped.

The reward for Susan Barskdale is $10,000.

Officials said the pair should be considered armed and dangerous, and the two could be virtually anywhere in the United States by now.
