Authorities said Monday that there have been no confirmed sightings of 33-year-old David Glenn Hobson since the weekend discovery of a stolen SUV near the Sanford-Alfred-Lyman town lines. Blood inside the vehicle suggests Hobson was injured Thursday while scaling a razor wire fence at the jail in Ossipee, N.H.

On Monday, state and local police and U.S. marshals executed search warrants at two homes belonging to relatives in Sanford. Hobson's father was previously accused of leaving supplies.

Police believe Hobson may have headed to the area with the intent of injuring two people, and there's a heavy police presence in the area.
