MCALESTER, Okla. - Two men reported missing from a McAlester minimum security state prison were recaptured Wednesday, according to officials.
Terry Buckley, 27, incarcerated for second degree burglary, eluding, drug and other charges, and Jeffery Walker, 23, behind bars for robbery with a firearm and possession of contraband by an inmate, were arrested in Palestine, Ark.
Officials began searching for the two men after they noticed the men missing that morning from the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center.
