WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas prison inmate serving time for violating probation could be facing more charges after walking away from the Winfield Correctional Facility.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1l1BHZF ) reports 29-year-old Jimmy Reed was caught by Department of Corrections special agents and Cowley County sheriff’s deputies just before 5 p.m. Saturday walking along Kansas 15, about 10 miles north of Winfield.

Reed was discovered missing around 1:20 a.m. Saturday during routine rounds and found 16 hours later. KDOC spokesman Jeremy Barclay says Reed probably would be charged with aggravated escape from custody.

Reed was incarcerated at Winfield for a parole violation in a 2009 Sedgwick County domestic battery and aggravated sexual battery case. A judge initially sentenced him to probation, but records show he absconded twice while serving sentences in Sedgwick County.
