Authorities believe they may have spotted the inmate that went missing from the Winfield Correctional Facility north of Douglass.
The man, Lewis Mitchell, 53, was caught just before 5 p.m. Wednesday after a sheriff's deputy saw him hitchhiking along a highway and, after approaching the man, saw him run into a corn field. Herzet said a lot of manpower was needed because of earlier statements made by Mitchell that he wouldn't be taken alive.
Mitchell was described as a black man standing 6-1 and weighing 210 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

Kansas Department of Corrections records indicate that Mitchell was serving a 27-month sentence after being convicted of felony burglary in 2016.
Butler County, Andover, and Augusta worked with the U.S. Marshall's service on the search. He was last seen wearing a state-issued white t-shirt with blue jeans or gray sweat trousers. Anyone who sees Mitchell is urged to call 911.
