Another camera, outside the jail, captures video from a distance of Hollis running to a car.

Hollis remains on the run and the sheriff's office is doing a state-wide manhunt.

"They're working it very aggressively. That's all I can say right now. A number of teams are out there," said Jeff Williamson of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Monday, Hollis and his girlfriend drove to the Orange County Jail for a probation hearing.

He has an extensive rap sheet including charges of false imprisonment and rape and should be considered dangerous.
