By CNN Wire Service.
(CNN) -- There is growing confidence that authorities have picked up a scent on the two convicted murderers who escaped Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York, sources told CNN. Dogs picked up a scent about three miles from the maximum-security prison, according to a state official and another source briefed on the investigation. Investigators have found an imprint either from a shoe or boot, as well as a food wrapper in the area, one of the two sources said. They are trying to determine if this an area where the escapees bedded down and how long ago they were there.
