New Hampshire corrections officials say two inmates have escaped through a window from a minimum security halfway house in Concord were recaptured as they tried to drive to Vermont.

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.

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.

On Sunday afternoon, state police said through tips and inmate interviews they learned the escapees stole a truck from a Concord area business. Police then caught up with the truck heading into Vermont. The inmates were taken back to the New Hampshire State Prison.
