UPDATE: Second Escaped Inmate Captured

The search is over for a second escaped inmate, on the run for more than a week and a half. Derek McCartney and Jeffrey Purchis were in the Lake County Residential Re-entry Program. Police in Flint picked up McCartney yesterday morning. The two were cleaning the Osceola County Road Commission garage when police say they took off in a county van. Downstate police found Jeffery Purchis last week near Lansing. McCartney is being held in the Genesee County Jail.
