VANCOUVER, Wash. -- Washington state Corrections Department officials say two minimum security inmates from the Larch Corrections Center escaped from a work crew in southwest Washington. One was recaptured within hours.

A crew supervisor noticed they were missing around 1:30 Tuesday afternoon.

The Corrections Department said late Tuesday night that McLain had been recaptured.

McLain is serving time for forgery, theft and drug violations. Marlow is serving time for property crimes.

If you see Marlow, officials say do not approach him. Call 9-1-1 immediately.
