Henderson Police: Escaped inmate now in custody

Posted: Updated:

Henderson Police have found the escaped inmate that left Friday morning during a work leave.

A tip from the public sent officials to the 1200 block of Elm Street where they found Nicholas Christian just before 3:00 P.M. who was on a work release at the jail garden Friday morning when he took off, prompting the lock down of several Henderson County Schools.

According to police, Christian was working in the jail's garden when he walked away and was later spotted along the riverfront by a passing tow-boat. He was tracked to an area just over the railroad tracks on Washington.

Christian was arrested and is in jail on an escape charge.
