Hi. Is your Escape a 4cyl or 6 cyl? From what you describe the vehicle has definatly been running hot. You need to start the escape and run it at about 2000 rpms until the temperature reaches normal. THen make sure your coolant level is correct in the degas bottle. There may be a lot of air in the system. This would be the first place to start. Then once the air is out and the heat is working inspect for any leaks.
