*Update* One of two convicted felons that walked away from halfway house captured

*Update* The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force says that one of the two convicted felons that walked away from a halfway house, Brian Whitford, has been captured. Whitford was caught Wednesday at around 2 p.m. in San Antonio and taken to the Guadalupe County Jail.

Whitford will see a U.S. magistrate judge before being taken back to Austin. Whitford is expected to be sent back to TDCJ and will serve out the remainder of his sentence. Additional time could be added due to Whitford's escape.

This is an update to a previous story. The original version is as follows:
