LANSING, Mich. — Friday morning around 5:30 a.m. Michael David McKerchie escaped from the Ingham County Jail on Cedar Street in Mason.

McKerchie is a 32-year-old male described as 5-foot-11 with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a prominent neck tattoo on his left side, a tattoo on his chest and a scar above his right eyebrow.

Ingham County Sheriff is asking anyone that saw McKerchie or anything suspicious in that area around that time, or if they see him now to call 911.

McKerchie had been housed since he was arrested for vehicle theft after a short standoff with police. He was charged with reckless driving causing serious impairment, failure to stop at the scene of an accident causing serious impairment, and resisting and obstructing. His bond for the charges was set at $250,000.

His next scheduled court date is in Ingham County 30th Circuit Court in Lansing at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 7.

Details on the escape are still being investigated. Authorities are asking the public to take note of the neck tattoo of the name “Joardan” in a script-style font, shown above.
