SALEM, Ore. — Two inmates who police said walked away from the Mill Creek Correctional Facility near Salem were captured on Saturday.

The Oregon Department of Corrections says Shane Willis and McComas were discovered missing from the minimum-security prison late Friday. Police said tips from the public led them to the inmates near a Salem golf club.

Willis entered state custody in April 2008 after a drug conviction in Marion County. His earliest release date is July 10, 2014.

McComas entered state custody last August on nine counts of criminal non-support out of Lane County. His earliest release date is July 25, 2015.
