The 911 dispatcher on the other end of the line with Michael Elliot's hostage spoke about the chilling conversation today.

Heather lock had been working for nearly two hours when she received an unusually calm call from a hostage.

The woman explained she had been carjacked, and was stopped at a gas station off the toll road.

Lock told the hostage, who lied about having a phone, to go inside to the bathroom to create some distance.

Elliot attempted to get the hostage out of the bathroom, but eventually left before police arrived.
No one was apparently harmed by Elliot during his escape.

The last time our area saw a jailbreak was back in 2009 when three prisoners escaped from the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City.
