LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - One of two inmates who walked away of a state correctional facility Saturday is back in custody.

Deputies say they found Christopher William Melton, 22, after someone spotted him in a truck with Tyler J. Roberts, 21, outside a church in Lincoln County.

After being spotted, the pair, who both escaped from the Blackburn Correctional Complex, took off in the truck. Just after crossing into Garrard County, police said the men bailed from the truck.

Officers caught Melton, but Roberts got away. K9 officers searched the area, but the dogs lost his trail.

Roberts is 5'9" and weighs 150 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. When last seen, Roberts was wearing khaki trousers.

Anyone who sees Roberts is asked to call police.
