Central Florida Crimeline announced on Friday it is offering up to a $20,000 reward for information in the escaped Florida prisoners investigation.

Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins were mistakenly released from the Franklin Correctional Institution in the last month because of forged paperwork. They were captured at a Panama City motel in October and were taken back into custody by the Florida Department of Corrections.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Attorney General Pam Bondi were already offering a $20,000 reward in the case.

Contact Crimeline at 800-423-8477. Tips that lead to an arrest involving this case could be eligible for a reward of up to $20,000.
