Hall County sheriff's Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks said Atlanta police Wednesday evening found the vehicle on Etheridge Street in Atlanta.

Authorities said 46-year-old James Edward Cantrell of Gainesville remained at large Thursday.

The Times of Gainesville reports ( that the escape happened Tuesday, as Cantrell was in custody at the Hall County Courthouse. Sheriff's officials said Cantrell concealed himself in the alcove of a doorway on the exterior of the building, then found the nearby truck with the keys in the ignition.
