LINCOLN COUNTY, Okla. – Authorities say three of the four inmates who escaped from the Lincoln County Jail earlier this week are in custody.

The men were hiding in thick brush in the area when they were captured.

Goodnight was in jail for property crimes. Irvin was in jail for first-degree murder.

However, officials with the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office reported that information was incorrect, saying Moody has not been captured and is still on the loose.

The Lincoln County Sheriff Office then corrected their statement, saying Moody has not been caught.

The fourth inmate remains on the loose.

Authorities are still searching for Brian Moody.

Moody was in jail for property crimes.

Investigators believe the inmates likely escaped through the ventilation system Monday.

This is the second time Moody and Baker have escaped from the Lincoln County Jail.

In March, Moody, Baker and another inmate escaped by crawling through a vent.

Lincoln County officials said they plan to review jail security measures in wake of the second escape.

If you see Moody, you are asked to call 911 immediately.
