- Ocean County officers will once again be stationed at schools tomorrow

Authorities in Ocean County aren't leaving any stone unturned in the hunt for an escaped prisoner.

Meanwhile residents in Barnegat Township are on high alert as Arthur Buckel remains on the loose for a third day.

Today we learned a jury previously convicted Buckel of killing a 10- month old child in 1995.  He served 14-years for hitting the baby that wouldn't stop crying.

The mayor of Barnegat Township says they will continue the search for Arthur Buckel until he's found or until there's proof he's no longer there.

State police cars escorted school buses home today even after Barnegat Mayor John Novak said a flood of leads failed to turn up Arthur Buckel.

Buckel was captured on surveillance shopping at an area CVS on Wednesday.  On Thursday, police officers were stationed at every single school in the area, and just a short time ago authorities announced they will once again be posting them there tomorrow.

Buckel was currently serving out a sentence for aggravated assault. He was scheduled for a parole hearing later this month.

We’ll continue to follow all the latest developments as the hunt for Arthur Buckel continues.

Buckle, 38, is described as 5'9", 180 lbs., with brown hair , blue eyes, a goatee, and a small tattoo under his left eye.

If you see Buckle, you are asked to call 911 immediately.
