A 25-year-old inmate who escaped from a north-central Kansas jail over the weekend has been recaptured, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office said.

Joseph Mosier, who was being held at the Osborne County Detention Center on Sedgwick County charges, turned himself in to the Elk County Sheriff’s Office about 1 a.m. Wednesday. He was later booked into the Sedgwick County Jail.

The sheriff’s office said Mosier escaped from the fenced-in exercise yard at the jail in Osborne. His disappearance was noticed at a head count at 10 p.m. Sunday. Mosier was charged in Sedgwick County with burglary, criminal damage to property, attempted theft and parole violations.
