DALLAS (KRLD) - After a 48-hour manhunt in Mesquite and Dallas, a prison escapee has been re-captured.

Sunday, Mesquite police warned that Wyoming escapee Robert Simpson was on the run after being spotted near Town East Mall. Another escapee was captured then and there.

But Simpson got away only to be tracked down yesterday in Dallas. Last month, Simpson escaped from a prison camp in Wyoming where he was sentenced for burglary with a weapon.
