Winfield Correctional Facility says Lewis Mitchell 53 escaped from their facility and was last seen at 9:30 p.m

A man who escaped the Winfield Correctional Facility was apprehended hours after he was spotted hitchhiking in the Butler County town of Douglass.

Butler County sheriff Kelly Herzet said Mitchell was caught near a hedgerow just north of a cornfield near Douglass shortly before 5 p.m.

When the deputy tried to approach Mitchell, he ran into a corn field off of Elm Street. Herzet said a lot of manpower was needed because of earlier statements made by Mitchell that he wouldn't be taken alive. Mitchell stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 210 pounds.

Agencies assisting include police departments from Andover and Augusta, U.S. Marshals, Kansas Highway Patrol and the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office.

Mitchell was serving a 27-month sentence for burglary out of Sedgwick County.

Lewis Mitchell, 53, was taken back into custody after a man hunt that lasted most of the day in rural Douglass. He was last seen wearing a state-issued white t-shirt with blue jeans or gray sweat trousers. He might also be wearing a red hoodie.

Officials say Mitchell is considered to be unsafe.
