MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire authorities say they have found two inmates - one of them in Canada - who left a transitional living facility in Manchester last week.

Both inmates left for work from Calumet House and never returned.

Corrections officials say 43-year-old Charles Namiot and 41-year-old Bruno Martin were nearing their parole dates and were placed at the facility to get a job, earn money and transition back into the community.

Corrections spokesman Jeff Lyons said Tuesday Martin was apprehended Sunday by the Canadian Border Patrol after he crossed the border between the Lacolle and Champlain entry points in New York. Authorities are looking at extradition options.

It wasn’t immediately known how Martin, who walked away Thursday, got to Canada, but Lyons said he was riding a bicycle when he was arrested.

Namiot, who went missing Friday, was found in Manchester at 6:15 a.m. Tuesday, near Calumet House, and was brought to the state prison in Concord. Lyons said Namiot was planning to turn himself in.

Namiot is serving two to eight years for armed robbery and Martin is serving two to four years for burglary.
