From a Times Staff Writer

Two suspected murderers and a suspected child molester escaped Saturday from the San Diego County jail on Otay Mesa near the Mexican border, officials said.

The three escaped from the recreation yard at George Bailey Detention Facility on Alta Road and were seen running into bushes in an adjacent canyon. Several law enforcement agencies were involved in the search.

The suspects were identified as Mark Estrada, being held on one count of murder and one of attempted murder; Joe Morales, held on two counts of murder; and George Munoz, held on three counts of child molestation.
