The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says 25-year-old Alvin Elliott walked away from a work assignment outside the perimeter of the Johnston unit in Winnsboro, about 100 miles east of Dallas.
The TDCJ search team found Elliott around 4:30 p.m. about two miles from where he went missing.
TDCJ search teams have located and taken Alvin Elliott back into custody. The 25-year-old offender had been missing from the Johnston Unit since 8:15 am, and was apprehended without incident about 2 miles from where he went missing. He will likely be facing additional charges. pic.twitter.com/hUgudZ1vhl— TDCJ (@TDCJ) July 22, 2019
