PARKER, Ariz. - Authorities are searching for a homicide suspect who remains at large after escaping on Sunday morning from the Colorado River Indian Tribes jail in Parker, Ariz.

Authorities in La Paz County say 25-year-old Mickey Roy Anderson, Sr. was among three men who escaped Sunday by assaulting a detention officer but that the others were apprehended within hours.

Authorities say Anderson should be considered mentally unstable and dangerous, reports CBS affiliate KPHO.

A La Paz County Sheriff's spokesman referred questions about the homicide case to a jail police official, Capt. Stuart Harper, who did not immediately return a call Tuesday.

Anderson is described as Native American with close-cropped brown hair or a shaved head and brown eyes. He's 6-foot-1 and weighs 155 pounds. KPHO reports that he has a tattoo on his neck that reads "Mickey Jr." and another on his chest that says "mouse."

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the apprehension of Anderson.

Those with information about the suspect are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO.
