Police are following a new lead in their search for a missing prisoner .Police say they want the suspect captured and put back behind bars as soon as possible.

24-year-old Daniel Preziosi had just finished a preliminary hearing on an October robbery charge and apparently he didn't like the outcome of his hearing.

As he was being led out of the district court offices he somehow escaped from custody. Police say he jumped into a Toyota Camry that was outside here and took off.The car has been found but Preziosi is still on the loose.

Police say he ditched his jail issued orange jump quit and could be wearing a grey hoodie and white long underwear. They do believe he may now be armed. Police say he was wearing a transport belt and handcuffs when he was leaving Judge John Capobionco's courtroom. Police are looking to talk to a woman who lives in Whitehall Township who may own the car Preziosi was believed to escape in.

There are still a lot of unanswered questions about how-he was able to escape, but right now police are conducting a ground search and K-9 search and coincidently the court building also serves as the Nazareth Police Department.

Preziosi has a long criminal history. He has been in custody 5 times in the last 4 years.
