Corrections Department spokesman Deidre Fedkenheuer tells the Times of Trenton that Eloy Sanchez was found in nearby Hamilton on Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities say the 27-year-old walked away from Jones Farm on Sunday.

Sanchez began serving a one-year sentence for robbery on Jan. 30. A parole hearing that was scheduled for October will be canceled and Sanchez could face an additional five years in prison because of the escape.
