An escapee from the Bell County Forestry Camp is now back behind bars.
State police captured Sammy Chilton who escaped from the Bell County Forestry Camp earlier in the week.
Chilton was arrested at a home in Wallins Creek Saturday afternoon.
Officials say they are still searching the mountains at Wallins Creek in search of 37-year-old Timothy Bowling, who is still on the run.
Bowling was serving a seven-year sentence for trafficking, theft, and receiving stolen property in Harlan County. He would have been eligible for parole in January.
Bowling is a white male, 6-feet tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact state police in Harlan at (606) 573-3131.
