Authorities have captured an Alabama inmate who, earlier this week, escaped from the prison where he was serving a life sentence for human trafficking, officials announced Saturday.
Corey Aris Davis, 30, was apprehended by agents with the Alabama Department of Corrections (ADOC), the facility said on Facebook. The inmate’s surrender, which happened nonviolently, occurred in Kentucky, ADOC said in a statement obtained by The Associated Press.
Davis was reported missing from St. Clair Correctional Facility in Springville on Wednesday after he was not in his cell during an 8 p.m. security check, the ADOC saidfollowing his escape.
On the day of his disappearance, he’d been given a work detail inside the prison, according to the facility. Other inmates and employees had seen him that day, they added.
