An inmate at the Northeast Regional Corrections Center in Saginaw has been located after he escaped Friday night.

According to the Duluth News Tribune, Branden Russell King was found to be missing during a headcount. Video surveillance reportedly showed King outside the facility heading to the woods at around 7:30 p.m.

Officials were notified he had escaped at around 9:15 p.m. Friday. 

After a ground and air search, law enforcement were unsuccessful in finding King, per FOX21.

But an off-duty officer reportedly later saw a man matching King’s description in Hermantown.

He was taken into custody without incident at around 6:40 a.m. Saturday. 

No further information has been provided.
