WARRINGTON, Pa. - Police in Bucks County say a prisoner who escaped from custody was spotted Tuesday morning. 

Warrington Township Police received a call around 8:50 a.m. from a resident who saw Daniel Selby Jr. The caller said Selby was at his house, looking for a ride home. The resident lives in the 2500 block of County Line Road, according to police. 

Selby ran into a wooded area toward the Bradford Dam Reservoir. 

The caller told police Selby is now wearing a dark jacket, jeans and boots. 

Police and K-9 units have the area of Bradford Dam and Lower Nike parks surrounded and are searching for Selby. 

Central Bucks High School South, Tamanend and Unami Middle Schools, and Butler, Mill Creek, Titus, and Barclay Elementary schools were all on lockdown, according to the school district's website. The website also said students will not be allowed to leave the building until the lockdown is over and that parents should not go to the impacted schools, because they will not be allowed in the building during the lock down. 

Officials say it's a precaution and there's no immediate danger or threat to the schools.
