A riot-control team arrived in Miami at an overcrowded federal detention center where two dozen inmates escaped, and authorities said a search was continuing for three prisoners who remain at large. The search was centered in the Everglades for the three, who were among the 24 inmates involved in the mass escape from the center Thursday night. Most of the escapees had been captured by Friday morning, but two inmates who came to South Florida from Cuba during the 1980 Mariel boatlift and one illegal immigrant from Haiti still eluded authorities.
