Both escapees from Salem, Ore., prison captured

SALEM, Ore. — State police say two inmates who escaped from the Mill Creek Correctional Facility near Salem have been captured.

Lt. Gregg Hastings says 41-year-old Shane Willis was arrested Saturday afternoon in southeast Salem. Earlier Saturday, 38-year-old Tyson McComas, was found in the same part of Salem.

The two men were discovered missing from the minimum-security prison late Friday.

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.

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