LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Corrections says authorities have apprehended an inmate who walked away from a minimum-security facility in Lexington.

A statement says 42-year-old Richard Shell was found about 4 p.m. Wednesday in Lexington. He was reported missing shortly before 9 a.m. on Tuesday from Blackburn Correctional Complex.

Shell was serving a 16-year sentence after being convicted in Laurel County on charges that include receiving stolen property. He would have been eligible for parole in 2018.
