New Hampshire corrections officials say two inmates who escaped from a minimum security halfway house in Concord have been caught.

Spokesman Jeff Lyons says 45-year-old Jonathan Conrad Ellinger and 42-year-old Dale Wayne Clark were reported missing from the transitional housing facility around 9 p.m. Saturday. He says another inmate told staffers the inmates left through a window.

Sunday afternoon, authorities announced that Ellinger and Clark were captured after stealing a pickup truck from a business in the area. According to corrections officials, the vehicle was found before crossing into Vermont.

Lyons says Ellinger was serving a 3- to 6-year sentence for armed robbery and was eligible for parole on January 3, 2017. He says Clark was serving a 1- to 5-year sentence for theft and had a release date of May 10, 2018.

Anyone with information about the inmates should contact their local police department or the New Hampshire State Prison at 603-271-1801.
