OKLAHOMA CITY — Two inmates walked away early Wednesday morning from the minimum-security unit at Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown. One was located a short time later, and the second remains outstanding.

Jesse Rapan Jr. and Randy W. Jones were discovered missing around 1 a.m. Oklahoma Department of Corrections staff arrested Jones around 4:55 a.m., but Rapan is still missing.
