UPDATE: Burns was taken back into custody Saturday night, about 15 miles from point of escape, reported the Star.

A "dangerous sexually violent predator" has escaped from the sexual predator treatment program at Larned State Hospital.



Authorities are looking for 41-year-old Bruce Franklin Burns, who somehow escaped around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday. 



Burns, who had been at Larned since February 2009, is described as being of American Indian descent (5 feet 10 inches, 165 pounds). He was wearing khaki pants, a navy jacket, a navy ski cap and black shoes, according to KAKE Channel 10.

All kinds of authorities are searching for Burns from the Kansas Department of Corrections, Juvenile Justice Authority, Kansas Highway Patrol, Kiowa County Sheriff's Office and the Pawnee County Sheriff's Office.

In August 1998, Burns was sentenced for attempted aggravated criminal

sodomy of a child younger than 14 as well as attempted aggravated

indecent liberties with a child younger than 14 (fondling) in Wyandotte County. He was paroled in October 2008.

If you see Burns, call 911.
