Denver (AP) - Authorities say a soldier suspected of being AWOL is again at large after escaping from a federal escort at the Denver airport.

Denver police say the handcuffed man was being transferred from Salt Lake City to Colorado Springs via Denver on Wednesday when he ran from his escort on Concourse B at Denver International Airport.

An active search was called off after about an hour, but airport employees have his description.

Police say the man, who turns 20 on Thursday, has no history of violence.

Fort Carson officials identified him as Pvt. Terrance Hilton of the 1st Special Troops Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

Police Spokeswoman Loretta Beauvais says the man is believed to be from the Grand Junction area.

    Once he's caught a second time the coward should receive a speedy trial followed by a speedy execution. He is a disgrace to our men and women in uniform!
