An inmate who authorities have said is "considered dangerous" is on the loose in South Dakota.

Authorities say Hardheart was handcuffed and wearing leg shackles when he was in custody and that he may still be wearing them. He was also wearing a striped prison shirt that he may have discarded in the process of his escape.
