A man and his wife are back behind bars in Clay County after being on the run for years.

On Wednesday officials with the Clay County Sheriff's Office flew to Texas to bring Jerry and Rebecca Callahan back to the mountains.

The two were charged in 2007 with rape, sodomy and incest and have been on the run for three years.

"We got a tip from someone who had been corresponding with them on Facebook. We obtained from IP addresses and things of that nature to get a location on them in Victoria, Texas," said Clay County Sheriff Kevin Johnson.

The Victoria County Sheriff's Office arrested the two on February 3rd.

The sheriff says new charges have not been filed at this time.
