One of two escapees out of Morgan County has been recaptured.

Sheriff Ana Franklin said Steven Mears was taken into custody Friday afternoon.

Mears, along with Johnny Johnson, escaped from a work detail in Decatur on Sunday.

Franklin said deputies were in contact with Mears' family hoping they would pressure him to turn himself in.

Mears contacted investigators to turn himself in.

Johnson is still wanted. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact police.
