NIANTIC, Conn. (AP) _ Authorities say they have captured two inmates who escaped from the York Correctional Institution.

Officials say 30-year-old Melissa Riley, of Willimantic, and 34-year-old Jessica Rivera, of Waterbury, were captured about 8 p.m. Sunday in Hartford. They were returned to York Correctional, where they were charged with escape and held on $500,000 bail each.

Prison officials say they could not locate the pair at the minimum security facility about 8:15 p.m. Saturday.
The facility was placed in lockdown.

Riley was in prison for a drug charge, while Rivera was serving time for conspiracy.
