WEST MEMPHIS, AR - Crittenden County police say an inmate who escaped is believed to have been found with police in Detroit.

Michigan police say they have positively identified a man as Tristian Wilson, who escaped from Crittenden County on July 3 by cutting through a visitation booth ceiling.  Authorities are waiting on a fingerprint analysis for positive confirmation.

After the analysis, Arkansas authorities will move to have Wilson returned to Crittenden County.

Two jailers no longer work at the Crittenden County facility as a result of the escape.
