A fugitive who escaped from a Salt Lake County constable Friday remained at large Saturday night.

Travis Aaron Johnson, 26, West Valley, was last seen among a group of prisoners being transported from the Salt Lake County Jail to the 3rd Circuit Court complex in West Valley about 12:30 p.m. Friday.Johnson was discovered missing during a head count.

Police believe Johnson fled the complex on foot. They found his orange jail uniform and wrist shackles in a bundle in a nearby street. A helicopter, numerous patrol cars and dogs scoured neighborhoods through the night but found no trace of the man. The search continued Saturday.

Johnson had been booked into the Salt Lake County Jail Thursday for investigation of issuing bad checks, sex solicitation and driving on a suspended license.
