UPDATE 1.10PM: Two escaped prisoners that are on the run have reportedly been spotted around the Emu Park and Cawarral area in Rockhampton.

This follows earlier reports of the men being seen in Mt Morgan, which may have been a hoax.

The men are believed to be in a white Toyota ute.

Earlier suggestions they were driving a Ford Falcon sedan are false.

Police are searching the area around the Cawarral pub after a confirmed sighting of the escaped prisoners.

Detective Inspector Darrin Shadlow confirmed the pair bought a six pack of beer before leaving the pub in a vehicle.

EARLIER: A number of people have reported seeing prison escapees Tony Dwaine Morgan and Bradley Thomas Kuhl at Mt Morgan on Tuesday night.

CQ Heavy Towing posted on Facebook the pair were seen in a white 2002 Ford Falcon sedan, registration 029 LCH.

Both men were reportedly wearing black hoodies and one had shaved his head.

Police could not confirm these details this morning.

"There have been some sightings around the local Rockhampton area, but we're just trying to confirm that they are legitimate sightings," Assistant Commissioner Mike Condon said on Tuesday.

"It would appear that they have escaped by rolling up a fence on the premises.

"Corrective services investigation unit have been engaged and on their way from Brisbane, and we've also got a number of detectives conducting enquiries locally in an effort to locate both these people," he said.

"If any member of the public sees either Morgan or Kuhl we ask that you do not approach them, that you dial 000, your local police or Crime Stoppers.

"I would like to say that harbouring an escaped prisoners carried a maximum term of imprisonment of two years and escaping lawful custody, such as these individuals have done, carries a maximum of seven years."

Morgan is serving a life sentence for murder.

Kuhl is serving a six-year sentence for armed robbery and other crimes.
