One of two inmates who recently walked away from a state correctional facility in Rapid City is back in custody.

Bowen is serving a four-year, nine-month sentence for possession of a controlled substance from Brown County.

Still at large is 30-year-old Ira Wright who failed to return to the center following a job search Oct. 3.
