Police are still on the hunt for escaped inmates Richard Matt and David Sweat -- now two of the most wanted criminals in America.

New York State police released they have narrowed their search to Friendship, New York in Allegany County.

According to police, search teams began their extensive search in that area around 2:30 this afternoon.
