(Reuters) – Police hunting two escaped convicts for a seventh day on Friday swarmed the heavily wooded area near an upstate New York prison as more details unfolded about a female prison worker’s role in their breakout.

New York State Police used Facebook on Friday to broadcast a refined description of the convicted killers Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34, changing details about their height, weight and hair color, and plastering the site with photographs of their tattoos.

Joyce Mitchell, an industrial training supervisor in the tailor shop at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, was being questioned about her possible role in helping the prisoners escape, authorities said.

Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie told CNN on Friday that Mitchell “provided some form of equipment or tools” to the men whose escape from the maximum security prison was discovered early Saturday.
