LARNED The Pawnee County Sheriff's Department says a 50-year-old convicted sex offender who escaped from Larned State Hospital has been captured.
Perry Lee Isley Jr. is part of Sexual Predator Treatment Program at the central Kansas hospital. The sheriff's department on Thursday confirmed Isley had been found. No other details were released.
Officials are investigating if someone assisted Isley's escape. A spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services says Isley apparently hid in a laundry bin and used a tool to cut through security fences.
Isley was convicted in Shawnee County in 1995 on two counts on aggravated indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14.
Isley previously escaped from Pawnee County custody on April 24, 1987.
