WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) -

State police are asking the public to pay attention to this picture of 27-year-old Tjayda Jones of Hartford, who investigators said they think may be somewhere in the Capitol City.

Jones is the man troopers said planned an escape from the Waterbury Hospital Friday. He also had a run-in with a longtime patient care associate there before escaping.

State police said Jones even had a getaway car lined up and waiting for him outside the hospital's emergency room.

Jones and 30-year-old Marcos Jimenez ended up at the hospital after staff members at the Chase Center Halfway House where they live called 911 for a possible overdose involving synthetic marijuana or k-2.

The nonprofit that oversees the facility said both men were taken to the hospital by ambulance unsupervised, which isn't unusual.

According to court papers, Jimenez took off on foot, but was later captured in Bristol.

During his escape, Jimenez actually called a program director stating he didn't know what to do, before hanging up the phone.

Jones, who was serving time for first-degree assault and robbery, was described as a black male, about 5'6" tall and about 180 pounds.

Anyone with information into Jones' whereabouts is asked to call State Police at 203-267-2200.
