Police believe a convict who escaped from a Virginia hospital this morning may have switched cars after finding one vehicle they were looking for — but not the suspect himself.

"The Toyota Camry w/VA tags: XZP-8513 has been located," Fairfax County Police in Virginia said via Twitter. "The suspect is still at large and we are continuing the search."

Police now believe the escaped prisoner, identified as Wossen Assaye, may be in a 2008 gray Hyundai Elantra with Virginia plates XTU-5024. He may now be wearing a dark colored jacket and blue jeans, police said.

Inova Fairfax Hospital, located in the city of Falls Church, Virginia, less than 10 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. was placed on lockdown this morning after Assaye escaped from custody, authorities said.
