ODESSA - A man wanted in Florida could have been spotted in West Texas.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement started a "12 Days of Fugitives" campaign this week.

One of the people on the list is Harry Dana Braswell. Braswell escaped from the Sumter Correctional Institution in 1983 by concealing himself in a piece of furniture that was being moved out of the prison. He is now 51-years-old.

Authorities say Braswell has been spotted in Odessa and Jasper, Texas at some point.

Braswell was arrested on February 22, 1975 for the murder of John Robbins. Braswell had been sentenced to life in prison before escaping.

A cash reward for information leading directly to the arrest of Harry Braswell is being offered. If you have information you can call 1-877-FLA-WANTED.
