The Indiana Department of Correction said the men walked away from the group at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Both men were held at the minimum security prison in Edinburgh.

The men were identified as 23-year-old Cody Morris and 23-year-old Troy Thomas. Morris is serving a two-year sentence for car theft and receiving stolen property, and Thomas is serving 18 months for car theft. Prison officials say both were wearing yellow prison jump suits when they escaped.

That county's Sheriff's Department says that one of the men has a relative near Amity. Both escapees, reportedly approached the home and the homeowner called police. The pair allegedly fled into a nearby wooded area and were caught a short time later walking near railroad tracks near County Road 400 South and U.S. 31.
