CAPSHAW, ALA. (AP) - The Limestone Correction Facility in Alabama might want to start handing out GPS devices with its prison-issued jumpsuits.

Officials there say an inmate playing a fugitive during a dog training exercise vanished into the woods Thursday.

Warden Dorothy Goode says 37-year-old inmate David Hopkins was helping out the canine unit by playing an escapee but never showed up for head count.

A “be on the lookout” warning went out and Hopkins was found within about an hour. Goode says he got lost and was not trying to escape. He’s serving a life sentence for theft.
