PATTONSBURG, MO (AP) - One of the three inmates who escaped from a northwest Missouri jail is back in custody.
Daviess County Sheriff's Department secretary Krystal Youngs said Nicholas D. McCleary was arrested around noon Tuesday northwest of Pattonsburg. She says he was found after authorities
got a tip about somebody suspicious walking along a road.
Youngs said she didn't have details about the capture and didn't know whether the 26-year-old Rayville man had an attorney.
Convicted murderer Carlos Sarmiento and another inmate are still at large.
The men escaped Sunday night from the Daviess/DeKalb County jail by crawling under a fence, leading authorities to go door-to-door warning residents.
McCleary was first convicted of property damage and a previous jail escape.

PATTONSBURG, MO (AP) - Authorities are looking for three men who escaped last night from a northwest Missouri jail.
The Daviess County Sheriff's Office says the men crawled under a fence to get out of the Daviess/DeKalb County jail in Pattonsburg.
The escapees include 57-year-old Carlos Sarmiento. He was convicted in September for first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Lance Davis. The two men lived together in Jamesport. Police say Sarmiento killed Davis by hitting him in the head with a hammer.
Sarmiento is scheduled to be sentenced November 19th.
He is 5-feet-9, 140 pounds with brown hair, with a tattoo with Spanish words on his right arm and a woman's head with a sombrero tattooed on his left arm.
The other escapees are 26-year-old Nicholas D. McCleary, being held on an escape attempt; and 34-year-old Timothy J. Baudour, who was being held for assault.
