Convicted murderer Tony Dwaine Morgan and armed robber Bradley Thomas Kuhl escaped under a fence of the prison farm and so far have not been tracked down, despite investigative teams being on scene within half an hour.

Assistant Commissioner of police for Central Region Mike Condon said traffic units had been notified to remain alert, as police were unsure of what their next move might be.

"We alerted road traffic command and all police across Central region shortly after their escape," Mr Condon said.

"All police are on heightened alert in a bid to find the two escapees."

Kuhl had served two years of a six-year sentence and had been eligible for parole since May 10 last year.
