(McAlester-AP) -- A man who escaped from a McAlester prison sits in the Caddo County jail.

Sheriff's deputies recognized Dustin Mapes in Binger and arrested him about 3:45 yesterday afternoon.

The 25-year-old Mapes is serving a five-year sentence for a Caddo County burglary case.

Officials reported him and 26-year-old Michael Hailey missing after a Thursday morning head count at the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center.

Hailey is described as a six-foot-one white man who weighs 198 pounds.

Authorities say Hailey has blond hair and blue eyes.
