McALESTER, Okla. (AP) -- A state prison escapee was recaptured about six hours after breaking out of the prison.

Officials say Brent Jones was captured while walking in Krebs about 2:15 Sunday morning. He had been reported missing at 8:30 Saturday night during a head count at the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center in McAlester.

Prison spokesman Bob Jameson says Jones is serving a three-year prison term from Carter County for larceny of an automobile.
