KAUAI, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The second inmate missing from the Kauai Community Correctional Center since early August has been captured.
Kauai authorities said 37-year-old Jeffrey Kelekoma Jr. was arrested Friday morning.
Authorities said he was located by police in a makeshift campsite in Anahola and did attempt to flee on a moped. He was closely followed and eventually tracked down to a home in Kapaa.
He was arrested without injury and taken back to KCCC.
Kelekoma Jr. escaped on Aug. 4 with Isaiah Pongasi-Adric.
Both were missing from an 11 p.m. headcount that day. They were both being held in minimum security dorms.
A week later, Pongasi-Adric was arrested. He was being held for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and criminal contempt, while Kelekoma Jr. is awaiting trial for felony assault, abuse, terroristic threatening and more.
Both men now face escape charges.
