EDGERTON, MO. – Two of three inmates who walked away from a northeast Kansas prison are in custody in northwest Missouri.
The Platte County (Mo.) Sheriff's Office says the men emerged from a rural home late Friday afternoon after hours of negotiations.
Capt. Erik Holland says 31-year-old Allen M. Hurst and 49-year-old Scott A. Gilbert walked out from under a back deck and surrendered without incident.
The pair had holed up in the house Friday morning, sometime after escaping Lansing Correctional Facility in Kansas early Friday.
The whereabouts of the third escaped inmate, 57-year-old Randy A. Ridens Sr., remain unknown.
